A trio of medals in National Sporting Championships￼29 April 2022
The Association of Colleges Sport National Championships took place in Nottingham last week, with Greenhead College representing the Yorkshire and Humber region.
Our Mixed Hockey Captains, Jono Perrot and Georgie Westwood, pictured below, were invited to be flag bearers for the region.
33 students from Greenhead College took part, competing in Cross Country, Netball, Tennis, Badminton, Table Tennis and Mixed Hockey.
We are delighted to report that we had medal success in the following sports:
Badminton – Lucy Walker, Louise Hutchinson and Gemah Fletcher achieved a team Bronze Medal.
Table Tennis – Kamran Amin won both the individual and team Bronze Medals.
Mixed Hockey achieved a Gold Medal. The team, pictured below, had fixtures against all opposing regions, winning every match except one which was a draw. Going into the final game against Richard Huish College, both colleges needed a win to be champions. Greenhead won 2-0 against a team that had not let in any goals!
Adele Crowther, Teacher of PE at Greenhead College said:
“What a fantastic weekend of sport! It was great to be back at the AoC Sport National Championships after a two year break due to covid. All 33 students that represented the College and the Region performed magnificently, demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship, teamwork, athleticism, and resilience.
We are extremely proud of all the students who competed over the weekend, they were a credit to us. Coming home with bronze in badminton and table tennis and gold in the mixed hockey was the icing on the cake!”
In terms of skill, sportsmanship and teamwork, our College was exceptional. At the end of the tournament, we were commended by the officials with regard to our students’ attitude and team ethos. All our students performed magnificently and were a credit to Greenhead College and the region.
