The College has triumphed once again at the annual Teignbridge Sports Awards held at the Langstone Cliff Hotel on Friday 2nd December.
The awards, that look to celebrate local success within sports as well as community projects throughout the region, is an annual highlight of the College calendar and 2016 was no exception; College students were nominated an astonishing four times for their incredible work throughout the year.
Following deliberations by a judging panel, including Jim Barrett from Sport England and Cllr Jeremy Christophers, Leader of Teignbridge District Council, Callie-Ann Butler came third in the Disabled Person of the Year category and Lewis Breslan and Jazmine Montier came first and third respectively in the Young Persons Services to Physical Education and Sport. Most notably, Year 10 student, Billy Green, was awarded the overall Junior Sportsman of the Year for his incredible Motorbike Trials success, seeing him crowned British Champion once again during the 2015-2016 period.
Assistant Principal, Louise Ransom, could not have been happier for the students: “The Annual Teignbridge Sports Awards is an incredibly prestigious event that looks to recognise contributions to sport both locally and nationally. Newton Abbot College is so proud of the nominated students for all their hard work and dedication over the past year. Huge congratulations especially to Billy Green whose win was extremely well deserved after his incredible success in the motorbike trials and his runner up position in the same category last year.”
