Athletics Awards and Alumni Ball, 2017

The idea of an Athletics Ball has been floated for years now, but this year finally saw its realisation. On Saturday night, nearly 100 members of the Club – old and new – met to celebrate what the Club means to them. For current members, it was a chance to rub soldiers with the esteemed figures of WUAXC history; for the 30+ alumni who made the journey, it was a moment of nostalgia of reminiscence.

As part of the ball came the annual cross country awards, with the Captains’ Awards for Best XC Athletes going to President Stock (#fix) and Julia Bijl – well done! All in all, this proved to be a well-deserved celebration of a triumphant season.

No mention of the ball would be complete without a massive shout-out to the ever-brilliant Events Coordinator, Namho Cho, who has only gone and delivered another flawless event! Hopefully this is a night which becomes an annual occurrence.

Finally, thank you to Chesford Grange Hotel for hosting such a wonderful night!
