E-League win for Warwick [25/Apr/13]

Warwick won the last round of the E-League to claim the overall crown by a commanding six points. Warwick finished on 48 points. Edinburgh could only finish 4th in Round 5 with Loughborough second and Southampton third, but Edinburgh held on to second place with 42 points ahead of Loughborough's 41 and Southampton's 39.

Warwick have finished second in the E-League four times in the previous five years, missing out on the title in agonising fashion 12 months ago. This time however, the Midlands side were clear winners and all 3 three major indoor titles now reside with (different) BUTTS league clubs.

Cambridge finished fifth on 28, with Birmingham's higher average keeping them ahead of Bath after both finished on 23 points. Lancaster were eighth on 16 points, but Nottingham and Oxford both failed to return any scores and will be the two teams relegated. The E-League has taken a tougher line on clubs not entering their own scores and as a result the 2013 BUCS Indoors and BUTC champions will be in E-League Division 2 next year.

They will be replaced by Derby and Liverpool who finished second and third in Division 2, level on 41 points and with averages just over 2200. Warwick B finished top of the division, Edinburgh B were fourth. Napier were the next best placed A team, fifth on 30 points.

Three teams entered no scores in Division 2, so it seems likely that Durham A will join London A and Aberdeen A in promotion from Division 3, the trio having dominated that table. It is unclear what will happen in terms of promotions and relegations lower down. Six teams entered no scores in Division 3, but only five teams in Division 4 did enter scores. Sides promoted from the Conference will include the A teams of MMU Cheshire (in second), but also Strathclyde and Huddersfield (third and fourth).

Edinburgh comfortably won the Novice Division 1 title with 48 points, despite Southampton grabbing a maximum in Round 5 to confirm second place on 42. Napier finished third on 36 ahead of Birmingham on 34 and Warwick on 32. As in the senior table Nottingham and Oxford entered no scores and will go down.

The promoted sides from Novice Division 2 will be Derby and Bath who were fifth and seventh in the table. Edinburgh B finished well clear, despite a last leg wobble. London A won Division 3 and will be amongst four sides to go up. Division 3 itself had 10 no scores, so the promoted teams will include A teams MMU Cheshire (second) and Strathclyde (fourth).

Gareth Fleming (Queen Margaret) won his second round of the year to take the overall gents recurve title with 94 points. His only likely challengers were Thomas Cram (Loughborough), who was second in Round 5, taking his total to 86 and Sherman Ip (London) fifth in the round and finishing on 80 points. Fourth and fifth were Jorge Lindley (Warwick) and Matthew Sharpe (Surrey) on 62 and 61.

Ladies recurve went right down to the wire. Sarah Russell (Birmingham) had taken the lead after Round 4, but was herself overtaken by Maryia Karpiyevich (Cambridge) who scored 20 in Round 5 to take the title on 87 points, with Russell fourth in the round, taking 17 points for a total of 86. Victoria Saduikis (Queen Mary) was third on 77, with Margaux Mesle (Edinburgh) also on 77, having missed a round. Rachael Hutchison (Warwick), who had led for the first three rounds, finished fifth on 76.

Barebow winners were Alexander Gilliland (Edinburgh) and Morag Douglas (Aberdeen). Chris Tombe (Birmingham) romped home in gents compound on 98 points. In ladies compound Naomi Jones (Edinburgh) was on 80 out of 80, but no score was entered in March, so Rhiannon Norfolk and Amyce Aurora-Smith (both Bath) were first and second on 90 and 89. Top longbows were Ralph Vickery (Derby) and Rachael Hutchison (Warwick).

In novice recurve, Sukrit Hotrabhvanon (Edinburgh) took his fourth 20 to amass 95 points. Andrej Chrustaliov (Napier) was well clear in second on 82, with Andrew Howe (Southampton) third on 66. Bethan Koller (Napier) took her third set of maximum points on extend her winning margin on 88 points, with Sarah Haile (Birmingham) second on 73 and Julie Saigusa (Edinburgh) third on 68.

Novice barebow categories were won by Matthew O'Donnell (MMU Cheshire) and Jennifer Mankin (Edinburgh). Jennifer Mankin was the only individual to claim a cleap sweep of 100 points.

As usual, the E-League has produced some fascinating results this year. The Best Results tables in the Club Directory will be updated very shortly.
