AN AMAZING RUN – 5 DSO TITLE FOR ST. JOSEPH’S
Somnath Kamble

WADALA- MUMBAI, OCTOBER 19, 2010 :  St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala is sure enjoying a dream run in sports this scholastic year.  In just over a month, the school has <![if !vml]><![endif]>pocketed its fifth DSO title by claiming the DSO Mumbai city basketball championship in the u-17 category for boys.

Coming close on the heels of the DSO handball tournament held earlier in the week, the DSO basketball tournament for the u-17 category held on 15 and 16 of October, 2012, proved to be a happy hunting (ground) for the Josephites.  Of course, it was no cake walk for our hoopsters, since they had to dig deep as the tournament progressed. The team eased through the preliminary rounds of the competition with comfortable victories over Campion School and Our Lady of Good Counsel. 

The semifinal against Shishuvan brought out the best in our boys, and a hard fought victory, 30-24, assured them a place in the finals of this prestigious tournament. The opponents were our feared archrivals Don Bosco, Matunga, whom we never managed to conquer at the DSO level in the u-17 category.  In a riveting game that saw fortunes swing like a pendulum – it was not for the faint hearted- our boys displayed tremendous skills and mental toughness to eke out a 33-32 victory over our famed opponents.  Just a point separated the two teams in a battle of physical stamina, skills, mental strength and astute planning.  Player management and effective strategies were smartly executed by the coach, Mr. Raju and ably supported by the assistant coach, Mr. Somnath.

Off they go now to the divisional level to take a shot at the title and thus bring glory to the school and sport!  All the best boys.
