Champion OV

Many congratulations to OV Alex Ward (Cl 13-20 and King’s St Alban’s) whose Loughborough University Netball team have just been crowned the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Conference Cup Champions 2022.

The finals, held on Wednesday 9 March 2022, saw the Loughborough Women’s 6 come face-to-face with the University of Birmingham’s 5s team. The result was a resounding win for Loughborough: 47-27.

Alex’s netball career began in her early years at King’s and she represented the School throughout her time, culminating in being a key member of the 1st Netball team.

Celebrating this wonderful victory, Alex said, “Winning the BUCS cup feels absolutely amazing. It was a great experience to play in such an important match with a big crowd – it almost felt like Superball again! I really enjoyed the match and am delighted with the result.”

She continued, “I am thoroughly enjoying playing for the Loughborough Students’ Netball Club at University. It has been a great opportunity to play other universities in the BUCS league and to have met so many lovely girls in such a good community. I love being able to train often and play games most weeks; it is great fun but hard work!”
