AUG Day 3 Wednesday Wrap Up

The storms that plagued yesterday's games had thankfully moved on for today's play, and the normal Gold Coast sunshine returned. Our 37 teams competed across the Gold Coast, here are some highlights:



Monash University today became the overall 2015 Cheerleading Champions! In its first year as an AUG sport, our cheerleading team was made up of 91 athletes who competed in 6 individual teams. After competing over the last two days, our combined medal tally crowned us overall champions.

In the individual team competitions Monash came first in the 1/2 All Girls Cheer, the 3/4 Coed Cheer, the Hip Hop, and the Pom Duo (Julia Colman & Melis Rutherford).

Our Men's Tennis team also had an extraordinary day. The team ended the day having won every one of their five games. Their convincing win today has secured them the top spot in their pool, and entrance into the Semi Finals tomorrow.

The Women's Softball team won both of their matches today, beating Bond University 7-2 this morning and Melbourne University 18-7 this afternoon. With two pool games remaining tomorrow, they are still a chance for finals on Friday.




Monash University are Cheerleading Champions!

Monash University was crowned overall Cheerleading Champions today at the Australian University Games (AUG) in the Gold Coast!





In it's first year as an Australian University Championships competition, our Cheerleading team was made up of 91 cheerleaders across 6 different teams. After competing in the 6 events over two days, our combined medals crowned us overall champions. 


Our individual team's results were:

First in the 3/4 Coed Cheer
First in the Hip Hop
First in the Pom Duo (Julia Colman & Melis Rutherford)
Third in Jazz
Fourth in 1/2 Coed Cheer






AUG Day 2 Wrap Up

TeamMONASH had a great day of competition today.


Monash has two more gold medals! After a very successful two days on the athletics track, we’re currently sitting in third place overall in the Men’s Athletics competition. Daniel Leane’s gold medal in the Men’s Pole Vault was a standout. Daniel vaulted 4.30m’s which was 15cm’s higher than his closest competitor. Our second gold medal in Athletics came from Toby O’Brien who won the Men’s 3000 Metre Steeplechase with a time of 9.33.59. 


Equally as exciting were the Monash Men’s Table Tennis team who broke a 4 year losing streak to Melbourne University today, with their hard fought 8-3 win over our fellow Victorian rivals.


Men's Table Tennis Team


Our women’s Squash team continued their winning streak for the week, with two 4-0 wins against Melbourne University and The University of Western Australia today. Now in the first position in the competition, they are in pole position to win the Gold Medal come Friday.   


Men’s Soccer had an exciting 1-1 draw with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), after having an early lead. UTS were last year’s champions so the draw well and truly cements the team’s position at the top.




Unfortunately storms throughout the Gold Coast called a halt to most of the afternoon competitions today, with a lot of our team’s games being cancelled or called off due to the weather. 


AUG Day 1 Wrap

TeamMONASH began their hunt for the AUG championship today with fantastic results. Our students from over 35 sports competed across the Gold Coast in their varying arenas.



Our T20 Cricket team are currently at the top of their pool after beating Curtin University (CU) today. The boys managed to run CU out for 66 runs after only 15 overs, and then managed to chase that total down in their first 5 overs batting. Their convincing win not only earned them the regulation 3 points, but also two bonus points for running out their opponents before their allotted 20 overs.


Our women's netball team had a similarly convincing win, beating the University of Notre Dame (UNDA) 120-1. A stunning result. The  team is well on the way to repeating their Gold Medal winning performance from last year. 


After winning Silver overall for the last two years, the Ten Pin Bowling team is determined to fight for gold this year. They got off to a great start this year after besting their two opponents, Adelaide University (AU) and The University of Wollongong (UOW), 3-0 each today.


Our volleyball teams also performed exceptionally today, with the Men's Volleyball, Women's Volleyball, Mixed Beach Volleyball and Men's Beach Volleyball winning every one of their combined 9 games.



We have our first Gold Medal of the games! Monash are Taekwondo Champions!

Monash University are the Taekwondo Champions of Australia!

The Taekwondo event took place over the Saturday and Sunday before the main week of the Australian University Games. After competing fiercely over the two days, our 37 Taekwondo athletes managed to secure the sport's overall Gold Medal.




With 18 Golds, 16 Silvers and 8 Bronze Medals in total, our taekwondo athletes dominated the competition. This spectacular medal tally meant that we secured enough points to be crowned the overall Gold Medalists for the sport.


Worth a special mention are the three athletes from Monash who were selected to be members of the Green and Gold team for the whole competition; Madeleine Henry, Karmen Lam and Michael Luu.


Michael Luu gathered a medal in every event, with 2 Golds, a Silver and a Bronze. Similarly impressive was Danae Smith who won the Gold Medal in each of her three events.



TeamMONASH's AUG has officially started!

TeamMONASH's 2015 Sport Managers

TeamMONASH started this years Australian University Games at the annual welcome function and opening ceremony held on the 27th of September at Melbas in the Gold Coast.

All of the TeamMONASH athletes and staff wore their Monash blue uniforms and gathered together to celebrate the opening of the AUGs.

With over 750 students and support staff representing Monash at the tournament, this year is already our biggest yet.

Speeches during the night from TeamMONASH Director, Martin Doulton, and our 2015 AUG Team Captains Craig Dent and Amanda Fung helped inspire the over 750 strong team.

"Over the next five days of competition our efforts will showcase the talents of our champion team. I have been privileged to have seen first hand the immense efforts put in to making this the most professional, most prepared and most spirited Monash University team ever. Monash is the biggest sporting university in Australia," Martin said, "...after nearly 12 months of planning, recruiting, organising and training, this is it!"

Message from TeamMONASH Director Martin Doulton: "This Is It!"


"THIS IS IT!

So after nearly 12 months of planning, recruiting, organising and building this is it!

2015 will go down in the history books as being the year that the largest team in our University's 57 year history represented the blue of Monash on the Varsity field.

Over 800 student athletes, coaches and support crew across 37 sports will be donning their uniforms in the pursuit of  taking out the title of Australia's University Sporting Champion at the 2015 Australian University games (on the Gold Coast) and the Australian University Championship for Rowing being held in Adelaide.  

As Director of Team MONASH I have been privileged to have seen first hand the immense efforts put in to make this the most professional, most prepared and most spirited Monash University team ever. Yes Monash is the biggest University in Australia but it takes a certain spirit, pride, passion as well as a whole lot of effort and experience to assemble a team of this size, quality and magnitude.

Over the next five days of competition through social media and the like our deeds will be relayed to the whole University community. While we will have some tough competition from our traditional rivals of Sydney and Melbourne over the week I am confident that as we unleash the #monashunibluetsunami our efforts will showcase the talents of our Champion team. We are here representing Australia's #1 University and are hoping to get the results our efforts so richly deserve!

Go MONASH!"
