Xaverian College compete in the AoC Sport National Championships

Students from Xaverian College represented the North West at the AoC Sport National Championships last month (April 2022).

Twenty students participated, competing in cross country, football and volleyball, after qualifying to represent their region at the Championships through regional tournaments, hosted throughout the autumn term.

The Men’s Volleyball Team had a storming weekend, winning all group games and knockout rounds, before going head-to-head against Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG) in the final. The team placed 2nd nationally and were credited for their exceptional sportsmanship across the weekend.

The Colleges Women’s Football Team also performed admirably, winning five and drawing one of the eight matches played. The team competed against some of the top football academies across the country and placed 5th nationally.

There were also strong performances from Jaydon Johnson and Ali Qozman, who participated in two 5km cross country races, with Jaydon securing 15th place overall.

Phill Anthony, Physical Education and Sports Teacher, said: “It was great to be back at the Championships this year. Congratulations to everyone who participated in an outstanding weekend of sport. Students were credit to themselves and Xaverian – well done!”

The AoC Sport National Championships is the largest annual student sporting event in the UK. This year, more than 1500 students from 91 colleges took part in 12 different sports at the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University and Willow Sports Centre, Derby.
