“Sports do not build character they reveal it”.
Sports extravaganza attracts all the enthusiasts of sports both as passion and career in the years to come. – Heywood Broun
Kabaddi was born from the soil of Southern State of India as a passion of rural rustics to show strength and strategy required for winning a game. But today it has matured as Indian Kabaddi League duly conceived and developed as Kabaddi League World Wide honoring Kabaddi by hosting Kabaddi World Cup.
India holds to its credit the glorious Kabaddi World Cup during 2004 & 2007. And the desire to win continues. Carrying the flagship of kabaddi as heritage- sport, the Alumni Association of Spurthy College of Science and Management Studies conducted inter-class sports event for men and women of degree students on Feb 2020 in the sports ground.
The field of play was ceremoniously decked up with flags, marks of white chalk on ground for the traditional sports. Flag was unfurled by the Honorable Chairman of Spurthy College of Science and Management Studies Sri. P. Gopala Reddy in the benign presence of Secretary of Spurthy Group of Institutions Shri. Vinay G and Dean & Director Prof. Suresh Babu, Principal Dr. C Vijaya and the most adorable team of faculties who groomed their skills with regular practice sessions and prepared them to face the big day with confidence. This was followed by National Anthem. The Honorable Shri. P Gopala Reddy tossed the coin as part of ceremonial ritual to begin the sport.
Since it was Inter Class matches for both men and women teams, the excitement knew no bounds and then there was Alumni Team Too, to compete and prove that Spurthians are daredevils when it comes to competitive spirit of winning.
With the desire to win in the heart both alumni team and In-House Degree students competed to the core.
The game was fairly played in the spirit of the game. The final results were:
- Kabaddi (Boys) Winners : Alumni Team B
Runners Up: VI Sem BCA
- Kabaddi (Girls) Winners : II Sem B.Com
Runners UP: VI Sem B.Com
- Throw Ball (Girls) Winners : II Sem BCA
Runners UP: II Sem B.Com
Both the winners and the losers had a friendly hand shake at the end of the results and gloriously exhibited the true spirit of sports packed with historic grace.
Indeed they demonstrated:
Sportsmanship is when a guy walks off the court and you really can’t tell whether he won or lost, when he carries himself with pride either way.
Such was the lesson learnt by our sports team members of Spurthy.
