A bit later than planned but Long Road were finally able to present sports awards to students for the 2019 / 2020 season that got cut short due to Covid 19. Thankfully, we were able to get all the awards given out and each student had their picture taken and added to the annual wall of fame; which you can see in our Sports Centre!
Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who helped contribute to a successful 2019 /2020 season for many of the college Sports Teams.
The Basketball Academy were the only team able to complete the 2019 / 2020 season. In doing so they achieved their highest finish in the ABL League and were just 1 place off finishing in the playoffs.
Our Women’s Football team still had a handful of games to play but were top of the league until the season was postponed.
The Netball league were competing in Division 1 in the AoC Sport League after gaining promotion from Division 2 the previous season and were 5th out of 8 before the league was postponed.
Both men’s football teams, like other colleges, had lots of games left to play and in the end, was declared null and void.
Finally, the Mixed Hockey team were sitting 3rd out of 4 before the season finished with 2 games remaining had a chance to finish 2nd. They also managed to make it to the semi-finals of the Knockout Cup which was a fantastic achievement.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has continued into this current season so whether we will be able to have an end of year celebration and a wall of fame 2020 / 2021 remains to be unseen for now.
