Mega Monday: the sports results from week 11

Geplaatst op: 18 March 2019 | Categorie: Geen categorie

It’s already week 12, which means that you can read about the sports results from week 11 in this week’s Mega Monday. Read about the results of NSTV Trion during the national run-bike-run series of last weekend.


NSTV Trion

Trion in the top 5 in national Run-bike-run series
Last Sunday, Trion competed in the first race of the run-bike-run series. Traditionally, the best duathletes and triathletes from the Netherlands take part in this national competition, and the ladies of NSTV Trion were present here as well!
We were told that the running course would be partly unpaved, but it turned out to be completely unpaved, so the ladies were completely covered in mud after the first running part. In the bicycle part, a curvy parcours with 180 degrees turning points and thresholds with cobblestones had to be taken. During the cycling violence, our ladies held up well, and they also ran well in the last 2.5 km.
This resulted in 5th place in the overall classification!
Because Trion has no male-team in the rbr-series, there were a few members of Trion that came out for another team. The other members of Trion were ofcourse present at the Stevensloop. Our president Wan Ying ran all three the distances, just as she did last year.

Last weekend, the men of the Radboud Rangers took part at the Dutch Championship Baseball5. They even managed to win a medal! Furthermore, the NSK Alround also took place last weekend. Haasje showed themselves and managed to win 3 medals! Read about their successes in this week’s Mega Monday.


NSSHV Radboud Rangers

On Sunday February 24th the Dutch Championship Baseball5 took place in Utrecht. A couple of guys from the Radboud Rangers went to Utrecht to bring the title of National Dutch Champion home to Nijmegen. They won the first match, then the second match and even the third match was easy peasy lemon squeezy! The guys made it to the semi-finals, everyone was already happy! Because of a sleepy umpire they played an inning to much and they lost because of a few points scored in that inning. Sadly they missed the finals. But after a very thrilling match it became clear: the guys of the Radboud Rangers won a bronze medal at the National Dutch Championship Baseball5! Like the sports commentator said: “Big celebration in Nijmegen and surroundings!”.


NSAV ‘t Haasje

Last weekend the one and only NSK indoor took place in Apeldoorn. There were 22 haasjes active during this tournament! All the athletes jumped very far/high, ran really hard or threw a long distance. This resulted in 3 medals. Daan de Grauw won the gold medal at triple jump. Vera Feitsma ran to a silver medal at the 60m hurdles and the 4×400 relay women also won a golden medal! There were also several club records and personal records this day. Despite losing our flague to another club, it was a really sucessful and fun NSK indoor for NSAV ‘t Haasje!

26th of February, Back to School Dodgeball Tournament

We all remember it right? The cheerfulness we experienced when we heard we could play dodgeball during physical education class in primary school. Last Tuesday, almost 100 people could experience this joyful moment again during the NSSR Back to School Dodgeball Tournament.

18 teams gathered in the halls of the Radboud Sports Centre – ready to divert themselves like back in the old days. To prevent the players from early injuries, Annemieke gave them a warming-up in the form of Moving on Music. All teams moved along and were ready to start the dodgeball tournament.

After the warming-up, the tournament began and started playing different types of dodgeball games. The fanatical teams went head-to-head in box dodgeball, big and long matted dodgeball, in Indian dodgeball and bunker dodgeball. The tournament finished with a final game of dodgeball where teams played 45 versus 45.

Following this, the prize giving took place, where all teams were thrilled to know which team won. In the end, it were the ‘Canissanova’s’ who could crown theirselves as NSSR dodgeball champions of 2019.

We can look back at a successful dodgeball tournament and we’re blessed that all teams were so fanatic. Additionally, we were, thanks to you, able to raise €180,-for the RAGweek! We hope to see you again next year at the dodgeball tournament!

Here it was made public that of the members of Phocas, Koen Metsemakers, made the team of the Men’s Quad! Earlier this year, the Men’s Quad was proclaimed as priority during the Olympic Games (for which the qualifications will be at the World Championships in 2019), so we are of course very proud!


Last Saturday, student korfball club SkunK 1 played a derby against another club from Nijmegen which is at the top of the league: Keizer Karel 1. Keizer Karel 1 started better than SkunK (4-0) but the students from SkunK were able to make a comeback. They didn’t give up and at the end they were able to tak the win with a final result of 13-15! This has been one of their best achievements this year.


NSSV Don Quichote

Last weekend, the annual X-Systra tournament took place in Paris. This student fencing tournament is traditionally seen as the biggest of Europe. Students from all levels are taking part at this tournament. Two members, Thomas Nijsen (saber) and Ashley Ophorst (foil), of Don Quichote were there as well, and with success.

On Friday, there was an individual tournament. Thomas was able to progress from the qualifying rounds. In the following elimination rounds, he was able to win the first one with 15-13, but unfortunately lost the second one with 15-10. He became 23th out of the 49 contestants which is a great result!

Ashley wins all her qualifying games and after being given immunity, she was able to win the next two games with 15-2 and 15-13. She just came short for competing for the medals, since she lost the quarter-final with 15-8. She eventually ended 5th.

On Saturday, the team competition took place. Thomas performed with saber and formed a team with two fencers from the UvA and a fencer of the Imperial College London. They were able to reach the semi-final, but unfortunately lost against who eventually became the winners of the whole competition. Unfortunately, they also lost the battle for the bronze medal and ended in the 4th place.

Ashleys team consisted of fencers from the UvA, University of Mainz and the University of Tübingen. They also reached the semi-final but just came short and lost 45-44. Nevertheless, they were able to win the battle for the bronze medal and ended 3rd!

Don Quichot ended a great weekend with a prom-party and a lot of fireworks. Next year, they will definitely be found in Paris again!

Mega Monday: the sports results from weeks 3 and 4

Geplaatst op: 28 January 2019 | Categorie: Geen categorie

In this Mega Monday deluxe, the sports results of not 1, but 2 weeks will be highlighted. You can read about the regional cupfinal that NSZV Ha-Stu won, the results of NSWV Mercurius at the NSK cyclocross, and finally you can read how NSAV ‘t Haasje performed at the NSK Cross in Amsterdam.



Wednesday the 16th of january, a (traditional) Ha-Stu party took place, because the 1st men team of Ha-Stu won, just like the last 4 year, the final of the regional cup. After the wins on Celeritas from Utrecht (27-24), and NHC (310-30), was it HV Huissen’s turn to get wiped by the stars of Ha-Stu. The tension was set by Jorik Hof in the Gelderlander, who announced the big turn up at the game.

At 20:30 in sports hall De Brink in Huissen, the cup final started with completely stuffed stands. Remarkable was that the biggest part of the stand was full with 50 blue-yellow Ha-Stu supporters that journeyed to support the men of Ha-Stu to the win. The men from Ha-Stu felt the pressure which resulted in a fast losing position of 0-4. But as experienced as they are, they knew how to flip the game and they got to an equal score when the first half was done.

During the break, coach Leon gave them a speech telling them to be more efficient with their chances. They took this speech seriously and were able to create a comfortable lead during the beginning of the second half. They became sloppy after, which resulted that they let Huissen come back to a difference of only one goal. In the final phase of the game, the men of Ha-Stu knew how to pull the game in to their hands and the final score became 22-27. A party broke loose in the sports hall which resulted in the needed voacal classics and beers.

The 8th finals will be played on tuesday the 12th of february in the Radboud Sports Centre. the opponent is still unknown, but it will be a top 4 team from the premier league or a BeNe-league team. The third cup party of the season is approaching, so jot it down in your agenda and stay tuned for more info!

NSWV Mercurius

N.S.W.V. Mercurius, the student cycling club from Nijmegen, was present at the Dutch National Student Championship Cyclocross at Tilburg on Sunday the 20th January 2019. This championship was organised by T.S.W.V. De Meet, where the track of the local cycling club Pijnenburg was used for the races. Mercurius travelled to Tilburg with a big group of participants and fans.

Prior to the Dutch National Student Championships, the local championship (Open Tilburgs Championship) took place. At this championship some Mercurius-members participated including: Dennis Hobbenschot (Finished: 4th), Jason Scheurs (5th), Yarince Martis (6th), Lieke Wijnbergen en Iris Willemsen (shared 1ste place). All participants finished the race without major injuries.

The first category at the Dutch National Student Championships was for men without license. The small peloton was dominated by Mercurius-members. In this category started; Guus Schutte, Joost van Wijngaarden, Remi van Oosterhout, Harold Ottens and Luc Vraets. Guus only had one job during this race. He had to prolong his Dutch Nationial Student Title of last year. After the start, it was soon clear that the race would be a contest between three rides, including Guus Schutte and Joost van Wijngaarden. While the last round started, it would turn out in an exciting contest! In the last technical part of the track, Guus Schutte took a lead and accelerated to his second Dutch National Student Championship Cyclocross (without license) title! Joost van Wijngaarden finished behind Guus as third and the rest of the Mercurius finished a few minutes later; Remi van Oosterhout (6th), Luc Vraets (7th) and Harold Ottens (8th).

Next up were the men and women with license and the women without license. Mercurius had just two participants in the category women with license; Femke de Vries and Lotte Koopmans. In the category women without license, Siobhan Schleijpen was the only Mercurius participant. During the race for women with license, it was soon clear that Lotte Koopmans was going to win the Dutch National Student Championship Cyclocross! She won the race with a solo ride, Femke de Vries finished 4th and Siobhan Schleijpen finished 5th.

Mercurius had a wonderful day in Tilburg with two Dutch National Student Championship Cyclocross titles in different categories. The day ended with a few beers for the participants!

NSAV ‘t Haasje

Last Saturday, the NSK cross took place in Amsterdam. 17 hares went to Amsterdam for this event. There was a lot of mud and a hill that you had to climb 3, 6 or 9 times, so a very though trail. ‘t Haasje was very succesful with a 1st and 2nd place for the women and a 2nd and 3th place for the men!

Mega Monday: the sports results from week 2

Geplaatst op: 14 January 2019 | Categorie: Geen categorie

Last weekend, Trion went to Egmond for their bikkelweekend. Read below how they wore themselves out on this trainings weekend.

As a yearly Trion tradition, a large delegation of Trionners went to Egmond last weekend. The weekend started on the bikes on saturday with a beachrace of 38 kilometers. With the mountainbike they cycled from Egmond to IJmuiden and back  while enjoying the strong wind and (sometimes) mullet sand. For most bikers this was not enough so next day they joined the runners for a 10 kilometer race or half marathon. Unfortunately , the wind had become stronger. After the first seven kilometers on the beach, the runners continued their way through the rolling dunes and finally ended with some kilometers where the wind came straight from the front. Although the legs felt tired, the feet still came of the floor at the blarenbal (blisterball).

The first prizes of the year are won by NSTTV Akris. They started the new year in a brilliant way during the Gelderse Table Tennis Tournament. Read about their successes below.

After a short break, the table tennis season started last weekend at the Gelderse Table Tennis Tournament. Whereas Akris only took 1 consolation prize last year, they really stepped their game up this year. Two Akrissers won the tournament in their division. Jasper Wijnen played a nerve-racking finale. He was 2-0 behind in games, but he managed to turn the match around and win with 3-2! Devlin Oosterwijk made an extraordinary performance. He won the tournament where he played good as well as surprising. In the finale, he had 2 matchpoints against him, but managed to win anyway. Between all the single games, there were also doubles games. Devlin Oosterwijk and Robin Gommans grabbed the title in the doubles with ease, while they had never played together before.

Devlin managed to win everything he could win on sunday! We would like to congratulate these players with their won prizes!
