Varsity Victory in Val Thorens!

A stunning result for Cambridge University Ski & Snowboard in their annual varsity match against Oxford!


Both the Men's and Women's Blues took overall victory during the Varsity Trip to Val Thorens, capping off a superb term of sport for Cambridge. The victory means that CUSSC retain the trophies that they won during the last event, which took place back in December 2019. 


There were excellent individual placings in particular for Egle Augustaityte, who finished 1st overall in the women's event, including 1st in Grand Slalom & Slalom, and Max Schubert & David Edwardes-Ker, CUSSC Co-President, who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively overall in the Men's event.

Those team members to be awarded half-blues as a result of their performances are:

Egle Augustaityte (Girton)
Sarah Hughes (Newnham)
Georgia Weeks (Downing)
Lara Gueorguieva (Murray Edwards)
Izzy Austin (Trinity)

Max Schubert (Churchill)
David Edwardes-Ker (Trinity)
Oliver Gustafsson (Churchill)
Cyffin Thomas (Fitzwilliam)
Amber Parsons (Jesus)


Congratulations also to Oxford Men's and Women's 2nds, and Cambridge Men's and Women's 3rds for victories in their respective races too, and a well done to all 12 teams involved in the races. 

A fantastic way to round off Cambridge sport in 2021!
