Ashley Peile bt Shane O'Reilly, 3-0
Jo Girvan bt Muriel Eustace, 3-0
This year the intervarsities were held by the Galway (NUIG) .
The Squash Intervarsities for those who don't know is an annual tournament competed in by many of the universities / colleges from all over Ireland. Suprisingly most players actually do manage to fit in the time to play squash after the socialising, the only question is, "Are they fit to play?"
This year we sent 2 teams to the intarvarsities: 1 men's, and one ladies
As always the intervarsities were enjoyed by everyone, both for the squash and the socialising. Unfortunately Cuan wasn't able to make it to his 9th varsities in a row. Shockingly, the 40 year old who makes us young students look like we behave like grannies was working on his PhD.
A-team group stages:
QUB A convincingly beat Galway 4-1 (all the games were 3-0). Next they had the pleasure of entertaining perpetual winners Trinity. QUB A, not suprisingly lost 5-0. It was enough to get into the semis where the team lost 5-0 to UCD A, though the games were closer than the score suggests.
B-team group stages:
QUB B failed to make it past the group stages, losing 3-2 to UCD B, and 5-0 to Trinity B *shock!*
The ladies teams played a round robin which was dominated by Galway, who amazingly have not been able to field a lady's team for the last few years. QUB finished 3rd.
