Women’s Basketball team reach AoC National Final

The Xaverian Women’s Basketball team recently reached the national final of the Association of Colleges (AoC) National Final.  The sport leagues are open to member colleges as well as schools, academies and training providers that meet their entry criteria.  There are currently more than 1,500 teams competing in a range of different sports.

AoC Sport is the membership organisation for colleges, leading the development of sport and physical activity in 16+ education. They believe that sport and physical activity are essential components of college life, giving students significant advantages in education, employment and health. Their vision is for every college student to participate regularly in sport or physical activity, with the purpose to promote, support and deliver college sport and physical activity.

Marcus Kingwell Managing Director AoC Sport said, “On behalf of AoC Sport, may I extend a warm welcome to the players, staff and spectators who have made it to our Basketball Cup Finals.  Many congratulations to all the teams. The AoC Sport cup competitions are the largest sporting events in the FE sector and getting this far is an achievement in itself. To the players, I wish you luck and hope you enjoy the day.”

We team played Richard Huish College from Somerset, they were better than us on the day although our students put on a strong performance.

Coach Paul Cantwell said, “Really proud of my Xaverian Women’s team, first time in their history of the college the girls programme has made a national basketball knockout final. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but nevertheless these young students worked extremely hard and did the college proud!”
