More Sporting Success for Monoux @ AoC London Regional Tournament!

Share

<p>Last  Friday, our Badminton, Table Tennis, Men&rsquo;s Football, and Netball teams were all  in action at the second leg of the AoC Sport London Regional Tournament</a>, spilt across two venues –  the University of East London and Hackney Marshes.<br />
  Like  the first leg of the tournament, this was again a day which turned out to be  hugely successful for Monoux.<br />
  We&rsquo;re  thrilled to announce we had <strong>Three </strong>students qualify to represent London  at the <strong>AoC Sport National Championships</strong> in April 2018, which is taking  place at the University of Nottingham.<br />
  Our  Badminton Men&rsquo;s Doubles Pair of <strong>Mim Bapari</strong> (on the Science &amp; Health  Pathway) &amp; <strong>Mohammed Khan</strong> (on the Enterprise &amp; Management Pathway)  won the Men&rsquo;s Doubles competition and qualified for the Nationals as Champions  of the London Region! In an event which was a real test of the students&rsquo; skill,  and physical and psychological endurance, the pair went on an undefeated run to  the final. They fought back 7 match points to eventually end up winners -  beating NewVic Sixth Form two sets to one. A superb achievement and a testament  to their determination, resilience and ability to work effectively as a team  under pressure.</p>
<p>The  other Monoux student who will be representing London at the National  Championships is <strong>Jazman Mabonga</strong> (on the Science &amp; Health Pathway),  who finished runner up in the Men&rsquo;s Table Tennis Singles Competition. A  fantastic effort, given the strength of the Table Tennis competitors this year.  This is the second time in two years that Jazman has reached the National  Championships, and he put on an excellent show of skill and focus throughout  his matches to qualify. A brilliant achievement so congratulations to him!<br />
  Finally,  a mention to all the students who competed at the tournament. Each and every  one of them represented the college fantastically well. The determination,  spirit, commitment and togetherness amongst the group was excellent. All the students  took an interest and made an effort to support their peers, and they can all be  pleased with how they performed and how they conducted themselves throughout  the day.<br />
