For the first time in York College's history, the Women’s Basketball Team has made it to the final of the AoC Sports National Championships.
Having been crowned the Yorkshire & Humberside regional champions, the girls will go up against teams from all other regions of the country at the high profile National tournament, to be played at the Wildcats Arena in Nottingham over the weekend of 20th - 22nd April.
Three years ago York College had success at the AoC Sports National Championships with the Men’s Basketball Team and last year the College won medals in badminton and tennis. This year it is the girls' time to shine with the basketball team made up mostly of Norwegian students studying at the College this year.
Coach Dave Smith has high hopes: “We have a great team, with each member demonstrating dedication and a determination to succeed. It’s a hugely impressive feat for them to have reached the national championships and I am proud to see their training paying off. Their competitive spirit is infectious and I hope it pays dividends at the most important basketball tournament of the year!”
