Interschool Volleyball & Basketball Competition 2014

Atmiya Vidya Mandir have started the 2014-15 campaign in sports with a bang as they won the first interschool competition of the year. School’s U14 team was the runaway winner at the interschool volleyball competition at Shri Ramkrishna Harikrishna Academy, Kamrej.

Such was the dominant display of the boys from AVM that they reached final without even breaking a sweat as the opposition teams could not even reach the double figure in points. The final was against the home team of Ramkrishna Academy. They gave a stern test in the first set as AVM boys barely won the set with the score of 26-24. However they picked up the pace in the second set and won the set very convincingly with the score of 25-10.

Playing away from the home ground is always challenging, especially to the young students, but the school volleyball team showed mental toughness and top level skills to clinch the first title of the year. Dev T Patel from class 9A was the star performer for the team as his overall contribution was very significant and it made the task easier.

The Basketball U-16 team also showed some great resilience and promise as they got beaten narrowly with a single point margin. With key players missing due to studies in higher classes it was always going to be an uphill task, but the younger boys showed what they can do in coming years as the team bowed out of the competition.

Congratulations to both the coaches Ritesh sir (Volleyball) and Bankim sir (Basketball) for good showing and a good beginning of the year. We also congratulate the participant students who made the school proud.
