Seevic Storm dominate AoC National Finals
Wednesday, 25 April 2018
The Seevic Storm Academy had a very successful weekend securing a handful of medals at the AoC National Finals at Nottingham University.
Medals awarded included:
- Gold Medal – Rugby Men’s 7s
- Gold Medal – Men’s Squash, Harry Kitchens
- Silver Medal – Woman’s Cross Country, Sinead Clarke
- Silver Medal – Men’s Cross Country Team
- Bronze Medal – Netball
Along with the success of the medals our Women’s Football Academy tied in third place but missed out on a medal by 1 goal and our Women’s Basketball team placed a respectable 6th after only playing together on several occasions this year.
The Rugby Academy have been crowned champions for the second year in a row after not losing a single game against some tough competition including, Truro, Hartlepool and Myescough College.
Head of Sport, Craig Davidson, said: “The hot weather made this a brutal and physical test for a lot of our students over the course of three days of competition.
“The attitude and behaviour of our students was impeccable and a real credit to our college, myself and the team are incredibly proud of them all and for what we have achieved with a serious amount of hard work and commitment.”
When speaking about the overall success of the AoC National Finals Craig added: “The AoC Sport National Finals proved to be one of our most successful ever. To come home with a gold and silver is a real testament to the level of the programme we offer.”
Seevic have had a fantastic year so far and are hoping the success continues with both the Rugby and Football Academy competing in a range of finals over the next coming weeks.
What our students have to say:
Isabel Chase (19), Seevic Storm Netball player who is currently studying Level 3 BTEC Business said: “I am proud of the team to come third it was an amazing achievement against some tough competition. We have worked hard this year and to beat teams such as Hartpury shows how far we have come.
“As a team we are now looking forward to our last couple of competitions to see whether we can claim any more titles.”
Tom Ramsey (18), Seevic Storm Rugby player who is currently studying Level BTEC Sport & Exercise Science said: “It is great to win the title two years in a row. We have had a good season so far with some more exciting competitions coming up.
“With the success we had last year we had to work hard to maintain our titles but winning the AoC Nationals is a brilliant start.”
