It’s a wrap on the 2019 UniSport Australia Nationals Div 1 event, and our Deakin Dragons have every reason to celebrate!
This year, the Dragons achieved the most successful results for Deakin University in many years at the annual tournament, with the Women’s Softball and Men’s Open Lawn Bowls teams claiming victories in their respective Gold Medal matches. Also a special mention to our Cheer & Dance teams for an impressive three Gold wins – congratulations to the Deakin Devils (Geelong), Deakin Gravity (Burwood) and Deakin Hydra (Burwood) for wins in their respective categories.
While the Women’s Basketball team had high hopes for retaining their 2018 championship title, the competition was especially fierce this year, and we couldn’t be any prouder of our Dragons who continued to display their fine form and outstanding sportsmanship while playing under intense pressure.
We also want to thank our coaches, sports trainers, massage therapists and all DUSA staff involved for their dedication and effort over such a big week. We already can’t wait to do it all over again in 2020!
