Sports

The College has a very good tradition of doing well in sports activities. The introduction of Physical Education in the UG level has helped the cause. The college has in the preceding five years organized two major University/district level sports activities. While in the year 2008, it organized the IXth Inter Non-Government College Athletics Meet and Football Championship, Purba Medinipur with twelve colleges, in 2012 the college successfully hosted the XIIIth Inter Non-Government College "Swami Vivekananda Athletics Meet and Football Championship" Purba Medinipur with thirteen colleges of our district. Both the tournaments were a grand success as it not only attracted active participation from all the constituent colleges but also afforded scope to our students to excel themselves in front of their teachers and classmates. Inspired and buoyed, they outperformed themselves on both occasions. Souvenirs were published both times to mark the occasions and celebrate our sporting successes.

The high points of our success in the IXth Inter Non-Government Colleges DPI Athletics Meet and Football Championship (Purba Medinipur) and the XIIIth Inter Non-Government Colleges "Swami Vivekananda Athletic Meet and Football Championship" are noted below:

The crowning success that year was the College Kabaddi team (Boys’) becoming champions in the University Meet. The college Kabaddi team (Boys’) followed this up with another champion’s trophy in the next year’s (2011) University Meet and went on to participate in the state and national Kabaddi Championship. The girls’ Kabaddi team was not to be left behind. They became the runner’s up in the 2011 University Meet. In Kho-Kho also there was cause for cheer.
