Racing ahead of all

Records were broken and new excellence benchmarks set at the inter-house athletics meet of Sainik School, Tilaiya.

The five-day event, which started from January 4, saw the cadets of the Koderma cradle displaying great enthusiasm, zeal, dedication, stamina and desire to win. There are a total of 12 houses — Aryabhatta, Vikram, Vaishali, Patliputra, Ashoka, Maurya, Nalanda, Rajgir, Kunwar Singh, Mithila, Magadh and Gautam.

Junior section’s cadet Abhijeet of Maurya House set new records in high jump (5 feet and 3 inches) and broad jump (18 feet). In the senior category, cadet Praveen Kumar of Vaishali House also bettered a previous record by covering 19.5 feet in broad jump.

Finally, cadet Praveen and cadet Yadwendra Vikas of Vaishali House received the best athlete awards in senior division while cadet Abhijeet clinched the title in junior division. The inter-house athlete trophy was bagged by Vaishali House while the runners-up honour went to Kunwar Singh House.

Principal Colonel V.K. Bhat and headmaster Colonel Premlal T.D. felicitated champions in a closing ceremony held at the school stadium on Wednesday.

“Each cadet has the potential to achieve the pinnacle of success in their chosen fields,” was the encouraging message from Bhat.

The principal added that the school was doing its best to provide proper guidance and an amiable environment to the students so that they can scale new heights in education as well as extra-curricular activities. He also lauded the members of organising committee — D. Kumar, M. Haque and Pranav Kumar Jha — for putting up a great show.
