1. CUABC celebrate after Chike Pilgrim (Darwin) wins the heavyweight bout and Cambridge secure Varsity victory in Oxford

"Heavyweight victory, knockout win, huge upset. Chike Pilgrim somehow launched our Cambridge team, were already up on the moon, into the stars. Unforgettable in Boxing Varsity History."


2. Tim Wallace (Downing) hits a six to win the T20 Varsity at Lord's, following up on the earlier exploits of opening batters Harry Houillon (Fitzwilliam) and Hari Kukreja (St. Edmund's)

"Tim came in a high pressure situation, and hit a dominant 15 off 6 balls, including two huge sixes. Not only was the winning moment amazing in itself, but it also capped off a fantastic team performance."


3. Alice Good (Emmanuel) wins HM The Queens' Prize, one of the most coveted prizes in rifle shooting, having begun as a novice as a new student in 2018

"Despite the odds, her talent, skill, and perseverance still triumphed over the decades of experience most of her competitors had, and will be remembered for as long as the sport continues."


4. Jasper Parish (Clare) Steering CUBC to Boat Race Victory

"Jasper chose a bold line early in the race to steer his crew out of the rough water off the start, and stole almost a length's lead. The lead stuck at around a length for the entire rest of the race, and the win was not certain until the boat crossed the finish line."
