The campus was quiet, with no students around; staff came in droves from all over the grounds.
As the clock struck twelve, and festivities began, it was time for the fun run - staff walked, skipped and ran.
With a quick lunch from Uni club, the faculties murmured, that each was the one who was the most learn-ed.
As the sun shone upon us and the teams played on,before we knew it the day was gone.
Friday, November 11, saw UWA Uni Club host the 2016 Staff Sports Day.
With an updated format, keeping everything on Riley Oval, the atmosphere was electric, with over 500 staff and 12faculties competing for the coveted title of Champion Faculty.
The afternoon began with a 5km fun run, around the UWA Grounds, and surrounding area. The day also saw teams play off in several competitions including volleyball and soccer, as well as a variety of novelty games.
The VCs dash was, as always a highlight, with a late entry from Professor Dawn Freshwater taking punters by surprise.
The volleyball was a hotly contested competition this year, and was taken out by the Chief Operating Office (COO) while the soccer competition was won by the team from Student Support.
The fun run results saw Robert Busi from The Faculty of Science take first place, followed closely by Carl Blair, also from Science. In the female category Engineering and Maths took home first place through Lisabeth Wagner, while our own Moira O’Brien Smith took home second place for the Vice-Chancellery.
The fun run was scored based on the first faculty to have ten participants cross the line, and for 2016 the Faculty of Science has taken home the win! See their results below:
Roberto Busi – 15:41
Carl Blair – 17.37
Darren Clarke – 18.21
Sergii Romanenko – 18.23
