The Scottish Student Sport Finals descended on Oriam Wednesday 1st May. The annual multi-sport competition pitched the best college teams against one another, competing for that champion title. We welcomed colleges from all across Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, West Lothian, Dundee & Angus.
Over the course of the day, colleges competed against each other in football, badminton, volleyball and basketball. There were some highly competitive and entertaining matches on show, contributing to a highly exceptional day.

Edinburgh College then followed up with victories over West Lothian college in the women’s football, City Of Glasgow College in the Women’s volleyball and finally a momentous 101-22 victory over City Of Glasgow College in Women’s Basketball.

The overall College Cup was won emphatically by Edinburgh College, bringing their total number of consecutive wins to 6. The cup will be presented at the college later this month. Competition coordinator Jess Barrows was delighted with the finals return to Oriam.
“We were delighted to return to the excellent facilities at Oriam for our College National Finals 2019! Scotland’s National Performance Centre is a fantastic stage to battle for Gold and this could be clearly seen in the excitement and energy of the 130 students involved. The event ran very smoothly and we are grateful for the help we received from Oriam’s staff who saw to it that we had everything we needed. I also heard many positive comments on the Bistro’s lunch selections! An excellent day all round and we can’t wait to return in the future.”
