Birmingham took the honours in the experienced teams, beating defending champions Warwick by a single gold. Birmingham’s Novices extended their winning streak, now undefeated in their last 8 indoor encounters.

India Wilson(426) was well clear of , Tupa Silva(379) and Amelia Elgey(341) atop of the Lady’s podium. Can Birmingham keep their winning streak going in Leg 2?

Familiar faces were also present at Nottingham, Warwick’s Tom Hall took gold on 584, Loughborough’s Arthur Coveney was 2nd on 577, his surname now possibly the most mispronounced in league history(?). Nottingham Trent’s Rob Gray came third with 569.
The red and black of the newly rebranded Warwick was also firmly on the top step of the Lady’s recurve podium with Maddie Meatyard shooting 555, silver and bronze went to the Nottingham pairing of Sophie Goodwin(535) and Elizabeth Elmer(524).
Warwick also took gold in the novice lady’s class with Nichole Tang who shot 424, 26 points ahead of Nottingham’s Rachael Armitage who was in turn 37 points clear of Ieva Lipska (Nottingham).
In the Gent’s class the Loughborough duo of James Lamprecht(437) and Leo Yang(406) were split by Nottingham’s Peter Matthews(421).
In addition to organising
four three clubs worth of hungry students at the social Nottingham’s Rebecca Blewett took compound gold with 570, well clear of Loughborough’s Harry Charlton(552) and Trent’s Hannah Sanchez (525).
It was an all Nottingham Novice affair in Longbow with Sam Day finishing on 262 to Lena-Lotta Michelsen’s 111.
Warwick took their final gold of the day with Jasmine Grosso taking the top step in Barebow ahead of Nottingham’s Matthew Muncaster(Novice) and Warwick’s Faheem Mirza(Novice).
In the Oxford boat race Derby won, followed by Oxford, Cambridge and then a very distant Birmingham.
At Nottingham Warwick A were the clear winners, after a review of the footage second place went to Nottingham Trent having been incorrectly awarded to Warwick B whilst Loughborough were third.
