Since this has become a week of celebration, there’s another big event to congratulate: York’s defeat of Corpus Christi College, from Cambridge, on BBC’s University Challenge!
After several months of hard work, heavy preparation and generally being smart, the team from the University of York smacked down Cambridge with a score of 170 against 135. They’ll now progress to the next round under the watchful stare of Jeremy Paxman, and get one step closer to an overall victory.
A special mention to our own Gaming Editor, Adam Koper, although the whole team played brilliantly and earned their victory.
Well done to them, and hopefully they’ll do well as they move through the rounds. Though we were the runner-ups in 2011, we’ve never actually managed an official win; maybe this’ll be the year we buck the trend and get ourselves on the winner’s list. We’ll see!
