So today (well yesterday, but I haven’t gone to sleep yet, so it still counts), was Derby Day. One of the biggest days of the UEA year and something that all students look forward to. This year it was at UEA. I’ve written about it before but this was the first time I had competed.
I HAD A BLAST!!! I think it’s a great day and something every student should get the chance to take part in! And do you wanna know the best part… WE WON! UEA won overall, by a huuuuuuge margin, something like 54-9?! And also… THE UEA ANGELS WON THE DERBY DAY COMPETITION FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!
I’m not sure if that’s 100% accurate but no one on the team could remember the angels winning, so let’s go with for the first time in memory!
It was an amazing day, with such a good atmosphere on campus, it felt like we were all one big team. People came to cheer on, even if they didn’t know anyone and there was a huge party celebration in the square. It will definitely be one of my highlights from my time at UEA and I can’t recommend it enough to new students!!
OH UEA IS WONDERFUL!
