Varsity Challenge Kicks Off
14 April, Thomas Lutwyche


The University of Melbourne hosted Monash University in the inaugural Varsity Challenge on Wednesday; with The University of Melbourne leading the best of nine sports, 3 – 1 after the home leg.
 
Challenging conditions met the athletes and supporters as Melbourne turned on its finest weather for the event providing wet conditions for all outdoor sports.
 
The Women’s Hockey was the first match of the day, with both teams trading goals throughout the match. The Melbourne team through Claire Alexander was able to score a goal with only a few minutes remaining on the clock to secure a 4 – 3 victory. Captain Melinda Casey and Sophie Sheahan were both excellent contributors as well.
 
In the Women’s AFL match it was a much more one-sided affair with the Melbourne team asserting its dominance early on the scoreboard, running at 11.4.70 to 0.0.0 winners. Key players for the Melbourne University team were co-captains Madeleine Keryk and Leah Caluzzi who led from the front, showing some great skills in the wet conditions.
 
The Men’s hockey match was a re-match of the Gold Medal game from Australian University Games last year and it ended up a resounding victory to the Monash team, who avenged their 2013 loss to defeat a gallant Melbourne team 6-1, to take the only Monash win for the day.
 
In the final sport of the day, Men’s Basketball, it was another re-match of the National University Championship match from University Games last year where Monash earned the bragging rights. This time, the result was flipped with some strong defensive efforts in the third quarter from the Melbourne team, restricting Monash to just 2 points, helped in securing a 49 – 42 victory. Andrew Steel led all scorers with 17 points, ably backed up by captain Tim Clark with 14 points.
 
Despite the weather the student-athletes put on a show for those brave enough to come out and support with both Melbourne University Cheerleaders and Monash Cheerleaders making plenty of noise.
 
The Varsity Challenge concludes next Wednesday 16 April, as Melbourne University teams travel out to the Monash Clayton campus to hit the field for Men’s AFL, Women’s Basketball, Men’s and Women’s Soccer and Ultimate Frisbee. The University of Melbourne needs to win just two more matches to secure overall victory and the Chancellors Cup. Supporters are welcome at the Clayton Campus with matches beginning at 4.30pm.
