Jesus and Mary College celebrated its Annual Intra College Sports Day on Friday, 7th March. The college is well known for its strong sports teams. The Guest of Honour for the day was Mr. Naresh Kumar Sharma. He is the first marksman to represent India in Paralympics in the field of shooting. Mr. Sharma has over 60 medals to his name, and is also a recipient of the Arjuna award.

Like every year, the major highlight was the march past. Each stream was represented by a squad of minimum 32 students, and every team had its own uniform. In all, 12 teams participated. The practice, which had begun a week in advance, proved fruitful for B.A. Programme, English Hons., and B. Com Programme, who won the first, second and third prize respectively.

A new event, the cheerleading competition was also introduced this year. Each department was invited to participate with 5-7 members for a 3-5 minute performance cheering for JMC. Unfortunately, only the Political Science department took part.

There was also a discus throw and shot put competition. Commerce students reigned supreme in almost all the races. The Commerce department also won the relay race, with Political Science and Sociology coming second and third. Other than these, fun events like the Caterpillar race and Train race were conducted. Races and events for teachers like the balloon bursting competition were also held. 100m, 200m, and 400m races were held along with a relay race.

The sports department, which wasn’t allowed to participate in any of the competitive events, contributed in terms of the entertainment factor by putting up an enjoyable Bhangra performance. The marching band from Army School upped the ante. The college’s yoga team also displayed their talents, along with Mudra, the western dance/ choreo society.
