The 2011/2012 season has been a good one to RSU floorball and basketball teams as both kept showing some impressive performance throughout their respective championship tournaments.

The RSU/Runway women’s floorball team has won the national championship for the second consecutive year, beating their opponents, Rubene, in the final series with four wins against a single loss. Interestingly enough, the two teams had already faced each other in last year’s final series, which ended with exactly the same score!

To the RSU women’s basketball team, the debut season in the championship of the New Women’s Basketball League turned out exceptionally well too. With a remarkable record of twelve wins out of fourteen games in total, our basketballers completed the season placed second. The RSU team lost the final game against the champions, Ventspils, by a very slight margin (59–60) as only a pair of precise last-minute three-pointers for the opponents decided the outcome.

On 2 May, RSU Rector Professor Jānis Gardovskis and Vice-Rector for Science Professor Iveta Ozolanta met up with our floorball and basketball teams to congratulate them on their achievements and wish them further success.
