Team ACU Win Holy Grail!
Oct 30, 2017 by Patrick Rebakis
After relinquishing the cup for the first time since 2013, ACU has retained the Holy Grail for the second consecutive year, defeating Notre Dame at the Sydney University Sport and Fitness Centre on Thursday 26th October.
In a hard fought first match ACU came out on top 77-63 in Basketball. Of many key performers across the court, Marcus Racine and Sarah Crisafulli had standout games setting up ACU to retain the cup in the next match of Mixed Futsal. In a dominant display from start to finish, ACU triumphed 13-2 leaving no doubt which University would be the deserved 2017 winners of the Holy Grail.
Again in a dominant team performance Alessandro Blasanato and Danielle Bartels stood out amongst the pack. With the cup safely back in ACU’s hands, Notre Dame won the Tug Of War match.
Congratulations to both ACU and Notre Dame on another great evening of sport between the two Catholic rivals, which as always was played in tremendous spirit. We look forward to defending the title in 2018!
