NLSIU Spiritus 09-10 - BasketballToday's guest blogger is Spiritus convenor Shravan Kochhar

NLSIU's annual, inter-collegiate sports festival Spiritus 2009-2010 began with a rush of excitement after national-level badminton champion Arvind Bhat's motivational speech at the inaugural ceremony on Thursday 14th of January 2010.

Over twenty law colleges from all over the country participated in events ranging from basketball and football to table-tennis and chess; the NLSIU campus and the Sports Authority of India grounds nearby were buzzing with activity for three days of suspense-filled, engaging competition.

For the first time ever this year's Spiritus introduced non-competitive events like paintball and gaming, giving both spectators and players enjoyment and leisure throughout the day. What’s more, informal events like sponge-throwing and arm wrestling, along with dozens of food stalls speckling the venue kept boredom at bay.

Spiritus was a showcase of talent and dedication to sporting activity, with high levels of skill and spirit devoted to every single match. 

While Christ College claimed first place for the Alyosha Kumar Memorial Football Tournament on Sunday, the home basketball team defeated the USS team in the finals, thrilling the crowd with a compelling, nail-biting finish.

Earlier, the NLSIU girls’ team also bagged first place for basketball, defeating DES in the finals.

The School of Excellence in Law Chennai was declared the winner for both volleyball and throwball.

Spiritus 2009-2010 closed with the insightful closing speech of NLSIU vice-chancellor professor Venkata Rao.

NLSIU scored maximum points overall but as gracious hosts handed over the title to the next contender Symbiosis Law, Pune.

Symbiosis won first place in several categories, including both squash and table-tennis.

Rainmaker, Flashpoint, and ABB sponsored the event, along with Legally India as associate sponsor and MegaMart as prize sponsor.
