SXUK : SPorts



One more year and one more step towards achieving greater heights through awards, achievements, accomplishments and recognition. The Sports Society has once again proved its competency towards fuelling the sportsman spirit through each and everyone of the University. It has not only shown great commitment towards organising the events throughout but has also maintained its higher enthusiasm though frolicsome atmosphere.

The members of the organising committee and all the participants have been actively involved in the activities both on campus and, made us proud by participating in off campus events as well. They are very well aware about the principles of a complete human being such as leadership, teamwork, responsibility and respect for others. These qualities make them a true XAVERIAN indeed! There have been times when they were through hard times that not only tested their efficiency but also they have successfully overcome those situations with their effective and smart solutions.

Participating in sports and maintaining descent academic scores is not that much easy. But these students excel at everything that comes in their way. All the students from UG, PG and MBA have excellent potential not only in their academic sphere but also each and everyone is a sportsman by one way or the other. The baton will be passed on to the next batch, but the spirit will carry on throughout their lives.

A year full of sports events in the University needs effective planning, organising and smooth execution of them all. The success of our events depends on hard work by the Sports Organising Committee headed by Secretary Medha Verma and Assistant Secretary Rishabh Agarwal and core committee members.
