WSFC Boys’ Hockey claim Bronze in AoC Championships
Congratulations to the Worcester Sixth Form College Boys’ Hockey team who finished in bronze medal position in the Association of Colleges National Championships. The annual Championships, which were held in Newcastle upon Tyne, include competitions in fourteen different sports and the boys’ hockey team qualified as regional champions back in December having not conceded a single goal!
As representatives of the West Midlands in the Championships they played the top teams from all other regions at Northumbria University. Over the three day event they won games against Long Road Sixth Form College, Cambridge (4-1), Cardinal Newman College, Preston (6-1) and Greenhead College, Huddersfield (2-0). They missed out on a silver medal to Richard Huish College (Taunton) and Peter Symonds College (Winchester) took the gold.
Congratulations to the whole team!
WSFC student secures International Triathlon Union World Championship title
Congratulations to Emily Burton on her tremendous success in securing the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championship under 18s title. The latest round of the Championships took place in Australia’s Gold Coast and Emily took the title with a race to spare after picking up two further gold medals.
Emily, a first year student at the College, also finished first in the ITU under-23 World Series Triathlon and was entered into the GB Relay team, which claimed the top prize.
She also achieved the Olympic Games qualifying time, but unfortunately will not be selected to go to Rio de Janeiro as the Great Britain team has already been filled.
We wish Emily every success in the next stages of the Championships!
