Seevic Storm sport academies have achieved brilliant results to ensure that this is another successful year
Celebrations have started as the Women’s Football Academy become the only team in Essex to be in Category 1 and play college football to the highest possible
Last week saw an exciting week for college sport as several competitors headed to the Regional qualifying rounds for the AoC Sport National Finals.
The Women’s football team were the first to qualify as they won the Aoc Sport East Region tournament and secured their place in the Nationals which will be held in Nottingham next April.
The girls did not concede a goal during the whole tournament making them an unbeatable team.
Craig Davidson, Head of Seevic Storm said: ““The highlight of the competition was undoubtedly the Women’s Football Academy winning their tournament.
“The girl’s level of play was exceptional throughout and for them not to concede a goal showed their skill and determination to win.”
Michelle Young, 17, who is currently studying BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, played in the midfield position in the tournament and said: “there was a great atmosphere on the day which really motivated us throughout the tournament.
“The whole team worked really hard and it is great that it has paid off – we all felt as a team that we deserved to win and we did.
“I cannot wait for the finals; it is going to be a fantastic opportunity and hopefully another day of success.”
As well as football Seevic students also qualified in Cross Country and Table Tennis taking them to the next round of the competition.
The men’s Cross Country team, which was; Sam Smith, 17, Joe Logan, 16, and Dexter Goward,16, won the event and the trio were also placed in the top eight of the individual group to qualify for the finals both as a team and individually.
Sinead Clark, 16, and Niamh Tuohey, 17, also qualified in the Women’s Cross Country to ensure all Seevic runners are in the starting line-up at the finals in April.
Finally Harry Small, 16, secured a place in the Table Tennis East regional team to fight for the title in the AoC Sport Nationals.
When reflecting on the day of success Craig added: “We have had another fantastic start to the year with our student-athletes excelling yet again at the highest level
“To have so many students qualify for the AoC Sport National Finals at the first round of qualifying is a testament to the strength of our provision.”
