Two Barnsley College Animal Management students have each won an Academy Player of the Year Award at the College’s Sport and Public Services Awards Evening, a significant achievement for non-sports students.
Gavin Batty, Director of Sport and Public Services, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for both Craig and Elspeth. It’s great to see students from other curriculum departments engage with the Sports Academy and develop as athletes and sports performers alongside their main academic studies.”
Head of Land Based Studies Wendy Wann added: “I believe that it’s important to encourage students to take part in extracurricular activities as well as their academic studies.
“It’s great to see that both students have been working hard to achieve both academically and as part of the Sports Academy.”
