OS awarded Linguistics prize from Cambridge

Monday 24 September 2012

OS Calum Harvey Scholes (R 2005-2010), who was awarded a scholarship by Magdalen College Cambridge, has now also been awarded a prize for his first year achievements in Linguistics.

In his second term at Cambridge, Calum set up and captained the Cambridge dodgeball team inthe inaugural Dodgeball Varsity Match. Taking on a well-established Oxford side, Calum's fledgling Cambridge team (whose training consisted of a couple of screenings of the 2004 film 'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story') put up a remarkable fight and eventually lost the match by 3 games to 4.

Calum's determination to win the return match next year clearly hasn't interfered with his academic studies.
