Listen up, sports fans, the time has come once again for the UniSport Nationals Div 1 competition!
Hundreds and hundreds of students across Australia, formed from the best of the best of the 2017 UniSport Games will battle it out this weekend from 22 – 27 September, and over 160 of these athletes will be Deakin students.
Oh, you better believe you read that right; the event is nigh! Soon enough our Deakin Dragons will put their best foot forward in a glorious effort to taste that sweet, sweet victory.
Deakin will be competing in Women’s Basketball, Men’s Beach Volleyball, Mixed Beach Volleyball, Cheer and Dance, Men’s Fencing, Open Lawn Bowls, Mixed Netball, Men’s Rowing, Women’s Rowing, Women’s Softball, Women’s Swimming, Men’s Table Tennis, Women’s Tennis, Men’s Ultimate Frisbee, Women’s Ultimate Frisbee and Women’s Water Polo. So, as you can see, there is a veritable Olympiad soon to take place on the Gold Coast!
Olympic swimmer Brooke Hanson will accompany the team as the Chef de Mission. She’ll be acting as a positive role model for the team, providing motivational speeches and inspiring the student athletes to do their best.
Our athlete, coaches, trainers and staff have worked hard to get into Division 1 and they mean to stay there. Proving this some of our teams are going back as the reigning champs, just like the Women’s AFL team who brought home the gold in 2017!
But our paragons of physical virtue can’t do it alone and they’ll need your support to ensure their domination. Show your fervent comradery by congratulating any of your fellow students who you know will be competing. The support will mean the world to them.
With fire in their hearts, and steel in their veins, we will use our own good will to galvanise our Deakin champions for their trials ahead. Good luck to everyone, we know you’ll make us proud! Together…we can be champions.
