OVERALL CHAMPION – CVR HALL OF RESIDENCE

Finishing the tournament with first positions, the teams from Vikram Sarabhai Hall of Residence (men) and C.V. Raman Hall of Residence (women) put up exemplary performances that left all the other participants spellbound. Their diving skills, the swift and agile strokes, and the pitch perfect coordination were duly appreciated by the audience. The Inter-Hall tournament which was intended to be an incentive for the upcoming Inter-NIT tournament went smoothly and was definitely a big success. Clearing the air in this context, Amit Rajkonwar, captain of the institute swimming team, said,

The no of participants was not up to the mark as several participants did not participate due to cold water and weather conditions. And though the participants performed well, they have to improve a lot to compete in Inter-NIT level
