A Thrilling Experience
Finally the day had arrived. It was a bright Friday morning when forty five NPSites were warming up on our ground, all set to set the tracks on fire at the Seventh State level Athletics Championships at the Kanteerava Stadium held by the Youth Association.
The event was held a few weeks after the inter house athletics meet of the school, and this gave the football-cum-athletics coach, Mr. Sebastian time to pick the top athletes of the school and train them in both fitness and skill every day.
We arrived at the stadium and marched proudly representing our school. Our regiment was led by Sports vice Captain Eeshan and House vice Captain Shatakshi. We watched in awe as the top athletes from over seventy schools across the state competed to prove their mettle. We participated in our respective events, some of which included 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, shot-put, long jump and the 1500m. Our school did quite well with several athletes finishing in the top 5 of their respective event.
More importantly, it was a brilliant fun and learning experience. We thank NPS for this amazing opportunity.
