After several months facing tough competition from local Colleges in regional heats, 10 King George V students were selected to represent the college and region in the Association of Colleges (AoC) Sport National Finals in Bath on March 27th.
Darren Brookfield, PE Course Leader at the college said: “It was an amazing weekend for all 10 students involved with 6 out of the 10 taking a medal home. These medals consisted of 4 silver and 2 bronze medals.
“It’s a great opportunity for our students to test their abilities against some of the top performers from colleges across the country, in world-class facilities.”
Matthew Nuttall competed in the golf event after winning the North West Regional tournament back in October, while Arron Ken performed well in the squash competition.
There were silver medals for Max Noble and Nathaniel Brown after they finished runners up in the Badminton Men’s doubles, while Alec Scott and Katie Dixon-Turner achieved silver medals in the mixed doubles.
The medals continued as Jordan Macdonald (Swimming) and Aaron Jarvis (Cross Country) won bronze medals for their part in the success of the North West team.
Finally, Matthew Bond & Jack Hughes can be proud of their performance in the Tennis Men’s doubles.
Claire Clarke, BTEC Sport Course Leader said: “Our students performed to an extremely high level. We look forward to continued sporting success for future years to come.”
Both staff members agreed the students were a credit to the college and added: “It was great to see the students representing the college so positively at the finals.”
The AoC National Championships is one of the largest annual sporting events in England. At past National Championships over 1,800 college students have participated.
Well done to all who participated on their sporting success.
