From that one breath before the start to holding one's breath for that last shot, for the last hit, for the last stretch, everyone made history and crossed individual limits. There was lots of raise in team spirits and cheering for our fellow mates. At this Annual meet, we saw emerging winners and this was a motivation for everyone. At the end with all the hardships and sportsmanship, the first place has bagged by the School of Business and Management as Overall Champion and the School of Law as the Runner’s Up.
