Hills Road Sixth Form College Sport Department have been awarded the coveted Clifford Dixon Trophy by AoC Sports - East. This prestigious trophy is awarded to the East of England Champions following the results of 37 competitions in 14 different sports, plus performances in the national AoC sport finals held in Bath each year.
Hills Road students amassed a total of 246 points over the season in sports ranging from Badminton to Football and Hockey to Volleyball, which is a Clifford Dixon Trophy record. Once again, all the top places were filled by sixth form colleges, with East Norfolk in second place and Colchester in third place. There are 35 colleges in the Eastern region in total.
Ann Hemming, Head of Sport at Hills Road said, “It was only a matter of time before the College won the title, after narrowly missing out over the last three years, last year by only 3 points!”
“The trophy is testament to the dedication of the Sport Department coaches and commitment and enthusiasm of the students.”
Linda Sinclair, Hills Road Principal, said: “This has been an incredibly successful year for Hills Road sport. I am very proud of the achievements of our young sportsmen and women and grateful to all the members of the Sport Department who inspire such a strong commitment to sporting endeavour.”
