Several Coleg Cambria students returned to college following the Easter break after representing Wales at the AoC (Association of Colleges) Sports National Championships held in Nottingham.
The 39th championship held at the University of Nottingham and other local facilities, was held over three days. The annual event which celebrates competitive sports as well as a number of voluntary roles showcased 13 different sports.
Seven Coleg Cambria learners competed at the sporting event along with students from other colleges. Connor Hewitt Williams, 17 from Buckley and Lucas Feng, 17 and Ethne Dowling, 16, both from Wrexham competed in the tennis whilst Michael Lewis 18 from Wrexham and Dhruv Bansal 18 from Wrexham competed in the badminton, Dhruv was also selected as the Welsh Team Captain. Jack Roycroft, 18 and Tom Gledhill, 17, both from Wrexham represented Wales in the golf at the competition.
Jack Roycroft who really enjoyed the competition said:
“During the event I got the opportunity to work individually as I’ve had much experience working within a team. This will help me to develop as a sports person in the future.”
Donna Welsh, Sports Programme Officer at Coleg Cambria who supported the students added:
“Although we didn’t win any of the events, we played really well and the students conducted themselves very well over the weekend, they were all a credit to the college and themselves”.
