As always, this round of BUTTS legs produced some very interesting results. Warwick now lead the experienced league by two points from Derby, with only one point separating Loughborough, Derby and Birmingham in the novice league.
At Trent, Richard Haydock (Nottingham) won gents recurve gold with 569 ahead of Alex Morrell (Birmingham) and Jorge Lindley (Warwick). Steph Reynolds (Trent, 571) won ladies recurve gold with the highest score of the day, ahead of Maddie Meatyard (Warwick) and Ellie Dyson (Trent).
Michael Hall and Melinda Higgons (Nottingham) both broke 500 to take the golds in the novice categories, while Jos Sarsby (Birmingham) beat Jake Bellamy on golds in the barebow category and Matt Dale and Luke Rieman (both Warwick) won the compound and longbow golds.
The following day at Cambridge, Tom Currall (Derby, 580) won the gents experienced gold ahead of Shaun Rhodes (Derby) and Tak Ho (Cambridge). Ladies gold went to Kirstie Smith (Oxford, 551) ahead of Maryia Karpiyevich and Eleanor Brueg (both Cambridge).
Davi Simmons shot a massive 546 to win the novice gents category, and Sophie Jenns (Cambridge) won the novice ladies competition. Gold medals also went to Harry Lofthouse (Loughborough, 491, novice), Ben Glover (Oxford, 562) and Matt Reeve (Derby, 347) in the barebow, compound and longbow categories.
Warwick won the experienced team competition with a score of 2236, while it is interesting to note that Birmingham's eight-place score of 2155 would have placed them third in the latest round of SSS (Scottish Universities) matches and first in the latest round of NEUAL (Northern Universities) matches.
The next round will take place this weekend at Warwick and Derby.
