Dundee off to SSS flyer [01/Nov/22]

Dundee took top spot in SSS match 1, with a convincing win. Strathclyde were second with Heriot-Watt edging Aberdeen for third. Edinburgh won the novice and compound matches. See SSS 2022/23 page for results and tables.

Dundee scored 2170 to take maximum points, with Strathclyde on 2050 their nearest opponents. Hosts Heriot-Watt and Aberdeen were third and fourth not far behind and were split by a single point 2018 to 2017, despite the top two scorers in the match Rebecca Leigh and Joshua Phillips (both Aberdeen) on 572 and 562. Racheal Chin (Dundee) anchored her team's winning total, notching exactly 560.

Edinburgh won the novice and compound matches, with Strathclyde a close second in the novice categories. Top individual novice was Jin Bai (Edinburgh) with 452. In compound, Jake Walsh (Edinburgh) tied the existing All Unis record with 596. He matches the score of Kai Thomas-Prause (Warwick) from 2019. Unsurprisingly this is the first change to the All Unis records spreadsheet in 2022/23.

SSS changed to an all vs all format in 2011/12. This is Dundee's first outright match win in all that time. The 120 point triumph brought that run to an end in spectacular style. It is the biggest margin of victory recorded in a SSS Portsmouth team of 4 fixture since November 2017. On this evidence, they will be the team to stop in Scotland and if they do win the overall title, they would be the fifth different champions in the last five competitive SSS seasons.

Dundee will also be SSS' sole representative at BUTC 2022 in Loughborough. Dundee's only previous appearance at a BUTC was 19 years ago, at the very first BUTC, Edinburgh 2003. The BUTCs of 2003 and 2004 used 10 zone scoring for the KO matches, so although this is Dundee's second BUTC, it will be the first time on the discs. Queen Mary (2014) and Sheffield (2012) also return after long absences. Royal Holloway and Worcester are set to make their BUTC debuts. Full list of teams is on the BUTC Tournament Info page.

The B team draw took place today and alongside the 24 A teams, the B teams of Loughborough (hosts), Bath, De Montfort, Durham, Leeds, Oxford, Reading and Sheffield are guaranteed spaces. Top of the waiting list are Warwick, Bristol and Dundee.

Hosting deadline for BUTC 2023 has been extended. Any clubs able/willing to host BUTC 2023 should get in contact with UKSAA ASAP.
