Discipline Captains 2018/19

 

Adam Finley – Open Team Polo Captain

PhD Astrophysics

I’ve been playing canoe polo since I started university at Lancaster, and was polo captain for Exeter last year. As polo captain, I aim to develop the sport of canoe polo in the club and increase the performance of our competing teams. I would like to see us continue to enter more tournaments and produce teams capable of entering higher divisions. One of my favourite memories is from attending a south west league tournament with only 3 out of 8 possible players! We put up a good fight and even scored a few goals!

 

Lowri Peters – Ladies Team Polo Captain

3rd year Anthropology

Hey I’m Lowri, I’ve been playing polo since I was about 15 where I played for Shropshire Ladies in the Regional League. I was Comp Sec last year and I have led the ladies team at BUCS for the past 2 years. As Ladies Captain I aim to increase the interest of ladies in the sport and develop our ladies team ready for BUCS with increased training and theory sessions. My favourite memory of EUCC has to be playing for our Ladies Team for one of the first times at BUCS in first year!

 

 

Tom Marshall – Slalom Captain

2nd year Geography

Hey guys, I’m Tom and I intend to make this the biggest year for slalom in history for EUCC. My aim is to create a strong enthusiastic team to compete in multiple slalom disciplines at as many events as possible! The club’s shown real progression in 2017/18 with some great BUCS results and I hope to improve our placing this coming year. One of my favourite moments at EUCC came from crossing the finishing line at BUCS Slalom last year and I hope we can create many more memories in the future!

 

 

 

 

Tom Howarth – Flatwater Captain

2nd year Biology

Hi guys, I’m Tom and I’m a 2ndyear Biology student taking on the role of flatwater captain. I have been involved in flatwater kayaking for 7 years now competing for my local club. I currently race in division 4 in marathon paddling and have competed in many races around the country. My role this year is to introduce more people to flatwater and improve the discipline within the club. As the first flatwater captain I aim to help run weekly training sessions on the water and circuit training sessions off the water, as well as getting teams for the sprints in Warwick and marathon races in Fowey and Exeter. My favourite memory of EUCC so far would be going on the Teifi tour last year.
