    01 May 2024

    Sport students at Burton and South Derbyshire College (BSDC) recently showcased their talents at the AoC Sport National Championships.

    A group of three individual athletes, along with the College’s male football team, qualified through their respective regional tournaments to earn a spot in the national championships where they proudly represented both their college and their region.

    Lucy Wright, Lucas Brogan and Jamal Ensor competed in the Cross-Country category. Lucy achieved third place and Jamal secured first place in the regionals. Meanwhile, the College’s male football team, who are enrolled in a Football and Education course in partnership with Burton Albion Football Club, won their qualifying match in the East Midlands regionals, securing their place in the national finals.

    Students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in such a high-profile tournament, and the football team achieved an impressive third place overall in the competition. While the cross-country team did not place in the final, their hard work and resilience were evident as they overcame challenges to compete on a national stage.

    Exclusive to AoC Sport member colleges, the AoC Sport National Championships celebrate competitive sport in colleges. This event provides recognition, enjoyment and a unique opportunity for students to compete against athletes from colleges across the country. Alongside individual glory, teams accumulate points for their region and vie for the prestigious Wilkinson Sword trophy.

    James Endsor, Sport Lecturer at Burton and South Derbyshire College highlighted the importance of student participation in competitions: “This is a significant achievement for both the individuals and the College. The students did an amazing job representing the College in the regional and national finals. Competitions like these are crucial for student development, encouraging teamwork, perseverance and a competitive spirit that will benefit them in all areas of life.”
