TSC Weekend Round Up: Nov 11-13

Over the long weekend, there were 3 TSC teams with competitions – all on the road. Whether it was on the water, on the court, or on a field, our teams gave strong early season efforts. All results showed great promise for future competitions.

The UBC TSC Sailing team came second in the Frosh-Soph regatta in Bellingham weekend. Despite the lighter wind, the team was on their A-game this weekend. The team consistently finished in the top four of their races. We were on track to win the regatta sitting in first place with a considerable lead.

In a turn of events, during one of the last races of the day, the team roll-tacked too far and capsized. The team moved down to second place just a few points shy of first and was eager to reclaim the lead the following day.

However, the notorious Sunday curse struck again. With yet again no wind on the second day, our chance to reclaim first never came.

Overall, it was a great weekend to bond with the team, meet some American sailors, and help prepare us for fleet racing nationals next weekend in Halifax.

Quidditch? No - it's Quadball! This past long weekend, UBC Quadball SC traveled across the province to Vernon, British Columbia to compete in the Quadball Western Regionals. UBC Quadball SC played an ambitious four games against Vanguard and Edmonton Clippers Quadball teams and made some great plays.

UBC, although a younger and newer team, successfully won three snitch catches, and was able to make some champion scores as a team with the quaffle.

“I could go on and on about how well we played as a team; we were heavily endorsed by the 2 club teams who were shocked by our performance as a team with only 1 senior player in attendance.”

Isaac Qi, TSC Quadball Club Lead

Rookie Micah Andaya had her seeker debut this tournament and tied for first place in the tournament with the most personal snitch catches. She scored a combined 110 points across 4 games which is the highest amount a player has scored at a tournament in the past two years.

Everyone contributed to our outstanding performance as a team and we could not imagine this tournament to go any better, and can’t wait to see how we do at nationals next year.

The tournament also got featured on the local news, with one of our Club Leads, Anya getting interviewed.

Men’s Tennis

This year, UBC Men’s Tennis SC went to Edmonton for their exhibition series against the University of Calgary Dinos and the University of Alberta Golden Bears. The team entered the weekend with a fresh roster, looking to see how they fare against the top competition in Alberta.  These exhibitions preview what’s in store for the Western Regionals in Spring 2024, as the winners of that tournament qualify for Nationals.

The team went undefeated in their first team match with the University of Calgary, finishing the day with a 7-0 record.

Then came Sunday, with their team match against long-time rivals, the University of Alberta. Last year, UBC dropped both the exhibition and Western finals against the Golden Bears by a narrow margin (4-3 in both team matches). This year, UBC showed poise and control, winning the day with a score of 5-2. Kiran Phaterpekar and Jared Maclean beat their former team in exciting three-set matches, which helped the 'Birds come home with the win.

These results have motivated the team to carry the momentum from these exhibitions into their training. Their ultimate goal for this season? Winning Westerns and punching their ticket to Nationals for the opportunity to bring home another national title.

This weekend, Sailing heads to Halifax for Canadian University Team Racing Nationals, and Men’s Ultimate and Equestrian head to Eugene, Oregon for their first taste of competition against American schools this season.
