Warwick regain E-title [30/Apr/15]

Warwick added the E-League title to an already trophy-laden 2015. Heading in to Round 5, March, Warwick already held a substantial lead and made sure of their second E-League title in three seasons. Warwick had three leg wins (and two second places) out of five and finished with 48 points out of a possible 50. In second place (on 38 points) were London. The SEAL champions revelled in their first ever season in the E-League's top flight, taking second spot ahead of local rivals Southampton. Southampton won the last round to overtake Cambridge and Bath right at the finish line, with Southampton on 37 points, Cambridge on 35 and Bath on 32. Aberdeen first E-League Division 1 season ended with them in 6th place on 27 points, ahead of Loughborough on 22 and Napier (also in Division 1 for the first time) on 19 points.

Full promotions and relegations for 2015/16 will be confirmed in due course, whilst the Club Directory's "Best Performance" tables will be updated after BUCS Outdoors. New in the E-League section of this website, is an Archive Summary page, similar to the BUCS Indoors/Outdoors ones. This shows the "medallists" going back to the E-League's beginnings in 2002/03.

In present day Division 2, Warwick B were top, but top A side (and second overall) were Liverpool A who bounce back to Division 1 at the first attempt. The second highest A team in Division 2 were Swansea A, who although they finished 8th, look likely to be promoted next year. Having led Division 3 for most of the year, Exeter A were pipped by Imperial A to the title - at least the top 4 sides from this division (so also London C and Durham A) should be promoted. Nottingham Trent A won Division 4 and will be inamongst a wave of promotions. At least 4 sides will be promoted from the Conference, including Plymouth A, who won the Division.

London won a closely fought Novice Division 1 with 37 points, Southampton one behind on 36. Warwick made up a 4 point deficit on Cambridge in the final round to take third spot on average, the paid on 34 points. Napier were fifth on 28 points. Southampton B won Novice Division 2, with Imperial A the top A team, third overall. The A teams of Aberdeen, Swansea, Exeter and Nottingham Trent should go up from Division 3 to 2, whilst Plymouth A's novices matched their seniors, winning the Novice Conference.

Robert Gray (Nottingham Trent) ended up coming out on top against defending champion Gareth Fleming (Queen Margaret), with 4 round wins, including the last round (with Fleming in second) to move 96 points to 94 ahead at the finish. Tom Hall (Warwick) was third on 83 points, Alex Hickson (Bath) was fourth on 71, despite a no score in round 5.

Rebekah Tipping (Aberdeen) successfully defended her individual E-League crown with 93 points, 8 clear of her rivals. Bridget Evans (London) and Maryia Karpiyevich (Cambridge) produced an epic battle for second place, swapping places after every round - Evans' scores first 18-17, 33-34, 51-50, 68-69, 85-85. Evans taking second place on averages. Ally Miller (Southampton) was fourth on 81, having won in Round 5, whilst Madeleine Meatyard (Warwick) was fifth on 65.

Graeme Stevens (London) and Emily Williams (South Wales) won the senior barebow categories, seeing off challenges from Rob Williams and Juliet Spedding (both Liverpool). James Edmondson (Warwick) and Amyce Aurora-Smith (Bath) were compound winners, with Ashay Alok (Bath) and Emily Williams (South Wales) winning longbow categories. Williams' longbow triumph was the only individual 100 point clean sweep and she retains both the barebow and longbow titles from last year.

In the novice categories, Michael Sessions (Southampton) and Farah Rizal (London) were the individual recurve winners. Second and third place went to Aurelien Servatiu (Warwick) and Benjamin Lo (Aberdeen) for gents and Aurelie Hua and Justina Valyte (both Southampton) for ladies.
