SCHOOL HANDBALL TEAMS SIGN OFF IN STYLE
ST. JOSEPH’S HIGH SCHOOL WADALA, JANUARY 19, 2013 : In a year with many sporting highs, the three school handball teams addedto the growing list of trophies in sport during this scholastic year. While the under-12 handball team brushed aside the challenges of all the leading contenders for the crown to lay hands on the glittering champions’ trophy, the u-16 team came close to winning it. The under-14 fought gallantly to claim the fourth position in their category.
The MSSA organized tournament, like the DSO, is turning out to be a grueling affair, with close to three to four matches fixed for the day. The boys stood the test, and scraped the barrel to outsmart and overpower their opponents.
The u-12 won the finals played on January 16, 2013 against Pawar Public School 12-9 to win the coveted crown, while defeating Jamnabai and Gopi Birla on the road to the finals.
The Azad maidan witnessed two more of our teams fighting for a place in the finals on the same day. The u-16 handball team won 12-6 against Gopi Birla, before losing to Garodia 2-8 in the finals.
The u-14 team lost their semifinals to Gopi Birla as also the third and fourth place play-off match against Garodia.
With these victories our handball teams have once more confirmed the status of St. Joseph’s as a powerhouse of handball in the city of Mumbai, while warming the cockles of the hearts of all Josephites.
We salute the victors and laud the efforts of the coach Mr. Raj ably assisted by Mr. Avinash. Three cheers!
