Newsletter February 23rd 2018 – BUCS, STANAGE AND MORE

13 Plymouth University students competed in the annual BUCS competition on Saturday 17th of February. Wearing some beautiful leggings, our team had three hours to complete 25 routes. With ~500 total competitors, the competition had a serious edge, with judges scoring each route.

The first 10 routes were split into A and B, each competitor only having to do one, but it created interesting dynamics with subtle differences between routes. The remaining 15 routes were tough, posing quite a challenge!

Plymouth worked hard and had fun! Although due to the incredible standard needed to reach the top, no one was close to reaching the finals. However, some strong performances include: James Kellaway (147 points – 84th/259) and Sabrina Brooke (88 points –85th/171).

Everyone should be proud as they weren’t easy routes – Besides we were the most colorful!
