HUDDERSFIELD New College are celebrating a hat trick of sporting successes.
The Girls Football Academy won the North East region BCS Knockout Cup and have progressed to the National quarter-finals, while the rugby league team topped the SRL League 2 and then went on to win the Northumbria University Invitational Cup.
Finally, the Basketball Academy team won the English Basketball League’s Under 18 Division, going through the season unbeaten at home.
Having lost just twice to Leeds Tigers and Stockport Falcons away from home, HNC had to beat both sides at home as the League is judged on head-to-head wins and the points difference between tied teams.
The Salendine Nook side beat Stockport 67-62, (giving them a 1-pt lead on aggregate) and then beat Leeds Tigers 70-65 in the final game in overtime to seal the title.
