University of Bath sporting scholar Emma Stacey hit her target of gold when she competed in the BUCS Clay Pigeon Shooting Championships over the weekend.
Her terrific total score of 87 out of a possible 100 after 12 rounds put the Politics & International Relations student, who is supported by a Santander Scholarship, ten points clear of her nearest challenger in the women’s singles competition.
Former Bath student Ben Sutton also won the men’s alumni category and placed second overall in the men’s singles with a score of 91, just one short of gold-medallist Ben McIlwaine.
Sporting Scholarships at the University of Bath support students competing at national and international level across a whole range of sports. Applications for the 2018-19 scholarship programme are now being taken from both current students and those potentially starting a degree in September 2018 – click here for more information.
