The Scottish Student Volleyball Cup Final took place on Sunday the 12th February, at the University of Dundee.
Four different Universities competing including University of Edinburgh, Heriot Watt University, University of Stirling, and University of St Andrews. These teams made it through to the Finals after battling it out the previous weekend in the First Rounds of the event.
Throughout the competition both the Men’s and Women’s teams showed of their impressive range of skills as they battled it out for the championship title. It was a full-day affair, with matches starting at 0945 and last match at 1515
An impressive push from the Heriot Watt’s Women’s team (top of the BUCS 2nd Division this season) helped them to defeat St. Andrews in the semi-finals – the team currently leading the BUCS 1st Division.
Making it in to the Men’s final were Stirling (who had just come off an impressive win against Heriot Watt) and the University of Edinburgh.
We caught up with the University of Stirling’s coach, who was impressed by his men’s team’s resilience to come back and win the game but admitted that Edinburgh would be tough opponents in the final.
In the end it was a successful day for the University of Edinburgh with both their Men’s and Women’s team bringing home the trophy.
After three exciting rounds, Edinburgh’s Men’s team secured the cup with a score of 25-15 in the last round.
When asked about how they felt competing against Stirling in the final, members of the Men’s Edinburgh team said:
“We didn’t want to underestimate them as they just came from a really well-deserved win. We just wanted to be consistent and get a lot of good spikes in and it eventually got us the win.”
The Women’s Final consisted of Edinburgh against Heriot Watt. Following their Men’s team victory, Edinburgh’s Women’s team pulled of another 3-round domination with the scores being 25-15, 25-17, 25-20).
A massive congratulations to everyone involved in the day. A special thank you to the officials, volunteers, and students for making the event a huge success!
