Abstract

Ten determined students battled it out to represent The University of Notre Dame Australia, Sydney at this year’s Eastern University Games (EUGs) in Bathurst.

The EUGs is an annual event that sees over 3000 students from 20 universities come together to compete against each other in many different sporting events.

Notre Dame had teams in both the Girls Netball and Ultimate Frisbee competitions. Whilst neither won, both teams fought till the end and enjoyed representing the University.

Ultimate Frisbee team member, Frank Farsaci, said he had a great time at the EUGs playing such a different sport and meeting people from other Universities.

“I found the event to be physically challenging but an overall amazing experience that I will never forget.

“Ultimate Frisbee is a crazy sport and everyone worked really hard to bring the team together. We all had a lot of fun,” said Frank.

Notre Dame students from both Fremantle and Sydney will also be competing in this year’s Australian University Games to be held on the Gold Coast in September. Students will represent the University in rugby 7s, women’s hockey, golf, women’s basketball, lawn bowls, mixed netball, swimming and mixed touch rugby.
