On Monday 14 March, the 2011 Tuks Miss Varsity Cup was crowned during half time at the Tuks Rugby Stadium. Nicole Greeff, a BA(Hons) Audiology and Speech-Language Therapy student, was crowned and will be representing Tuks at the Miss Varsity Cup finals on 11 April.
Greeff told Perdeby that she entered the Miss Varsity Cup competition because she wanted to back her boytjies. “I love Tuks; it’s such an honour,” she said. “The first thing I thought was: rugby rocks. I felt excited and overwhelmed with the crowd’s spirit and cheering. An exciting journey awaits me,” added Greeff. She believes that Tuks has a great chance of winning the Varsity Cup.
Greeff was one of 10 finalists who competed for the Tuks Miss Varsity Cup crown.
Before the winner was announced, these finalists were interviewed by a panel of judges. They were asked questions to test their knowledge of the Varsity Cup and the Tuks rugby team, as well as about their personalites to see whether they fit the profile of a Miss Varsity Cup winner.
The first and second princesses were also crowned. The first princess this year is Vanes-Mari du Toit, Tuks 1 netball captain and a BCom Human Resource Management student. The second princess is Andrea Janse van Rensburg, a second year BCom Financial Management student.
According to Greeff, this was her first time entering the Miss Varsity Cup competition, although she had always wanted to. “I was really excited to [finally] enter the competition,” said Greeff.
Greeff will be flown to the finals of the Miss Varsity Cup where she will compete against winners from other universities.
Perdeby wishes Nicole Greeff the best of luck and is confident that she will bring the “Miss Varsity Cup” title home.
