Twelve students represented North Hertfordshire College at the East Regional Tournaments at Easton College, Norwich this week. This was a chance for our students to compete against students from other colleges around the region, and also to participate and test themselves in the sports which they are talented in.
The Enrichment Men’s Football Team won their group stages of the 7 a side tournament with a 100% record beating Colchester College 3-1 in their first group game, Milton Keynes College 3-1 in their second group game and Hills Road 6th Form College 2-0 in their final group game. The team were drawn against SEEVIC College in the quarter finals where they narrowly lost 2-0. The team showed fantastic efforts to get to the quarter finals of the tournament and represented North Hertfordshire College impressively through the opportunity given to them. The team was made up of Joseph Lunt (Sport), Tanaka Chitate (Business), Jordan Spencer (Sport), Abraham Makalo (Electrical), Dean Morell (Sport), Jack Stanton (Sport), Jordan Massey (Sport) and Connor Darnell (Sport).
In the golf regional tournament, North Hertfordshire College were represented by Mark Slater (Sport), who finished 6th place, and Ryan Kearns (Sport), who finished 10th place out of the 29 students in the tournament. Both players with a very respectable finish seeing as they had never played on the Bawburgh Golf course before.
Will Rogers (Sport) represented North Hertfordshire College in the tennis regional tournament. The tournament was made up of 7 competitors from other colleges around the region, with Will finishing 6th place overall.
North Hertfordshire College’s most successful representative at the east regional tournament on Wednesday was Ryan Barton (Sport), who reached the semi-finals of the table tennis tournament, before narrowly 3-2 to the eventual winner.
Enrichment officer Liam McDevitt commented: “The students that represented NHC on Wednesday at the regionals were an absolute credit to the college through their attitudes and efforts throughout the day.”
