Paul Carroll, Sport Development Co-ordinator at the College, said:

“The evening was a complete success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. A large number of our students participate in a wide range of sports at all levels and I am extremely proud of all their attainments.”

For their all-round sporting prowess, Alex Grocott and Mel Lowe were named Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year. Other key awards were presented to Rob West for his contribution to sport in the community and to Callum Blades for service to sport. The Team of the Year was the College’s highly successful rugby squad.
