Awards celebrate another storming year

Over 250 students from all of Peter Symonds’ 30 sports teams came together to celebrate the annual Sports Awards Ceremony, marking the end of a successful and exciting competitive season.


The guest speaker was Simon Hazlitt, a British former field hockey player who competed in the 1996 Summer Olympics, has represented England in hockey 125 times, and coached the Peter Symonds Men’s Hockey Team to victory in both the AoC Cup and the AoC National Championships.


Award winners included Kate Wiseman as Sportswoman of the Year for her efforts in Women’s Hockey and Jon Page, Sportsman of the Year in Men’s Rugby.


The Mike Conlan Bursary of £1500 was awarded to Alice Monaghan, a talented cricket player who is playing in the England Women’s Senior Academy, recently playing for England in the EWSA tri series tour in South Africa.


Team of the Year was awarded to Men’s Hockey for delivering outstanding performances and sweeping up nearly every trophy available this year, including Gold at the AoC National Championships, the Hampshire Cup, the AoC Knock Out Cup and reaching the Quarter Finals in the National Schools.


Coach of the Year went to Mike Marchant, coach for the Men’s and Women’s Rugby Teams. Recent successes saw his teams bring home the Wren Cup, Hampshire Under 18’s Cup and the honourable 4th place at the AoC National Championships.


Event organiser Kirsty Fargher said “Sport is a key part of college life at Peter Symonds and the Sports Awards are a great way to celebrate the achievements of our teams, individual competitors, coaches and support staff.


“We are lucky to have a great number of talented young sports men and women and to be able to offer them the opportunities and facilities to enjoy competitive sport at a high level alongside their academic studies.”
