Bondies on cloud nine after Unisport Nationals

Bond University’s sporting excellence shone through at last week’s Unisport Nationals in Perth.

Led by championship-winning swimming performances by both men’s and women’s teams, Bond University claimed the Doug Ellis Per Capita Award for the ninth time in 12 years.

Unsurprisingly, Bond University also took out the Patrons Population Cup as best Per Capita Champion for the northern region.

Bond University Director of Sport Michael Collins was thrilled. 

“We take great pride in offering significant educational and sporting opportunities for our students, and these results speak of significant reward for effort,” he said.

“Bond has a strong reputation for sporting excellence, superb training facilities, and a wonderful culture of participation. Seeing our students achieve great things is extremely satisfying and we are very proud of them. We’re also very grateful for all our coaching and support staff for supplementing such in such an impressive showing.”

The Doug Ellis Per Capita Award and Patrons Population Cup go to the University that earns the highest number of points based on overall performance relative to enrolment numbers.

University sporting attention now turns to Rugby 7s with Bond University looking to claim back-to-back championship trophies at the University Women’s 7s kicking off in Adelaide on Saturday.
