Derby win both titles!

Congratulations to Derby for winning both the experienced and novice league titles this year!

The experienced league was very closely fought, with the top five teams finishing within ten points on the last day and Derby taking the league title from Warwick. In the novice league, only aggregate score separated Derby from second-placed Birmingham in the end.

Alex Morrell (Birmingham) shot 584 to take gold in the gents recurve category ahead of Tom Currall (Derby, 578) and Alex Smith (Oxford, 576). Charlie Birch won the ladies recurve category with a score of 565, beating Maddie Meatyard (Warwick, 555) and Kirstie Smith (Oxford, 553).

The novice categories were both won by Birmingham, with Sam Rees and Claire Pilgrim taking gold with scores of 551 and 528. Jos Sarsby (Birmingham) won barebow gold with 506, while Matt Dale (Warwick) won the compound category on golds with 571 and Luke Rieman set a new league record of 477 to win the longbow category. Jess Watts (Warwick) also set a new novice ladies longbow league record of 321.

Oxford won the team competition with 2259, narrowly ahead of Derby on 2258 and Nottingham on 2257.

At the BUTTS Ball, the Ultimate Archer medals for the best combined Portsmouth/Bray I/Worcester scores across the season were presented to:

Alex Smith (Oxford, Gents Recurve)
Charlie Birch (Oxford, Ladies Recurve)
Jonathan Burley (Oxford, Novice Gents Recurve)
Claire Pilgrim (Birmingham, Novice Ladies Recurve)
Matt Dale (Warwick, Compound)
Jake Bellamy (Warwick, Barebow)
Luke Rieman (Warwick, Longbow)

Purple badges were presented to Marc Tamlyn (Oxford) for services to BUTTS, BUCS and external archery, particularly through the creation of his scoring system, and to Rachel Foster (Nottingham Trent) for dedication to the league in entering her team for everything including running BUTTS Indoor Champs and Ball and the first ever BUTTS Team Champs.

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful indoor season, and I'll see you all outdoors soon!

Boat Race?

After four legs of this year's league, Derby lead Warwick by one point overall and they have the same aggregate score. This means that if they tie on score at the indoor championships, but Warwick win on hits/golds, the league will be decided by a boat race!

Back to this weekend, and Warwick's leg was quite low-scoring, with no-one breaking 570 in any category. Tak Ho (Cambridge, 569) won the gents gold ahead of Richard Anderson (Loughborough, 565) and James Jeffs (Warwick) who was one of four archers to finish on 552. Maddie Meatyard (Warwick, 561) won the ladies gold ahead of Sarah Warner (Loughborough, 546) and Maryia Karpiyevich (Cambridge, 545).

The novice golds were won by James Mole (Trent, 515) and Rosie Brandeth (Cambridge, 468), while Luke Rieman (Warwick, 458), Jake Bellamy (Warwick, 521) and Ben Sedgwick (Trent, 512) won the longbow, barebow and compound golds.

At Derby, Alex Smith (Oxford, 579) beat Tom Currall (Derby, 575) and Shaun Rhodes (Derby, 572) to win gents recurve gold. Kirstie Smith (Oxford, 561) beat Emma Harding (Birmingham, 557) and Victoria Brattie (Nottingham, 553) in the ladies recurve category.

Davi Simmons (Derby, 557-60-29) set a new league record to win the gents novice gold and Lizzie Elmer (Nottingham, 525) won the ladies novice gold. The barebow, compound and longbow golds went to Jos Sarsby (Birmingham, 524), Billy Gao (Birmingham, 575) and Matt Reeve (Derby, 364).

We're heading to Southampton for BUTC next weekend. BUCS takes place on March 1st and the league will be decided at Nottingham Trent on March 8th.
