Bond University named Northern University Games champions

Bond University has been named the overall champions at the 2011 Northern University Games (NUG) beating rival competitors including Griffith University, University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology.

This year, more than 130 students represented Bond University at the games, participating in sports including mixed netball, tennis, soccer and touch football.

Bond University Sports Officer, Ryan Lenegan, says this year’s performance is an indication of the effort and training put in by all teams.

“This year it came down to organisation and training; our students put a lot of sweat into getting ready for the competition and this has well and truly paid off,” said Ryan.

“The training was very intensive and because there is a qualification policy in place for teams wishing to attend the Australian University Games there was more motivation for the students to perform at their peak.”

The Jodie Martin Trophy, which is awarded to the best overall performers at the games, takes into account results across all sports and is determined irrespective of university size.  Bond University also came third in the Population Cup for per capita performance.

“This year our students walked away with gold medals for mixed netball, golf, women’s tennis and men’s squash. This combined with our silver and bronze medals is truly something for the Bond community to proud of,” said Ryan.

The students played their respective sports dressed in their newly launched sports uniforms, courtesy of Canterbury and Vachie, showing off their blue and gold colours with pride.

The Australian University Games will be held from 25 – 30 September on the Gold Coast.
