Sussex Win Varsity 2017!

An excellent Varsity performance from the Sussex teams saw them secure victory over Brighton in a win that sees us claim our fourth consecutive Varsity title!

Supported by the home crowd: Sussex recorded several big wins throughout to ensure we came out victors at the end of the day. The excellent form in both the BUCS league and cup competitions translated seamlessly into amazing displays from Women’s Rugby, Ultimate Frisbee, and Women’s Hockey; whilst valiant performances from Men’s Football, Men’s Hockey, and Women’s Basketball also saw them run out worthy winners in their fixtures.

With an overall score of 12.5 - 8.5, it was close. Sussex clinched the overall victory following the Basketball Men’s team 57 - 44 win in the Sports Centre.

Despite the win, the Students’ Union have released a statement on the actions of a minority of fans involved in violent and abusive behaviour which led to the curtailment of the Men’s Rugby match. This behaviour marred an otherwise fantastic day of sport.

We’d like to thank all the student teams that took part in this year’s Varsity competition. The hard-work and preparation from everyone involved resulted in a fantastic day of sport; the like of which has rarely been matched on Sussex campus. Another big thank you goes out to the vast majority of well-behaved fans who came to cheer on the teams - creating a fantastic atmosphere which made the day extra special.

Well done #teamsussex!
