College Sport Celebrated At Winter Sports Awards
Princethorpe College’s Winter Sports Awards took place on the last day of the Lent Term.
It was an opportunity to recognise the achievements of the College’s young sportsmen and sportswomen at all levels and across all sports.
The award ceremony began with the awarding of sporting colours recognising pupils’ commitment to sport. That was followed by a summary of the performances of the College’s teams, with awards recognising endeavour, progress, coach's player and most valuable player. The wide range of sports and the sheer numbers of pupils involved a testament to the importance of sport to life at the College.
Foundation Director of Sport, Lee Cassell, Head of Girls' Games, Jen Law, and Head of Boys’ Games, Joe Jackson, then went on to announce the teams of the season for which there were many contenders. The Girls Sports Team Of The Year was awarded to the U14A Girls Hockey Team recognising their success across the year, including finishing as runners up in the Tier 2 England Hockey Schools Midlands Championships and taking the Warwickshire County Championship title. For the Boys Sports Team Of The Year, the award went to the U14A Boys Hockey team, they won the Tier 2 England Hockey Schools Midlands Championships and also took the Warwickshire County Championship title.
