Students from IIT Tirupati participated in the 52nd Inter-IIT Sports Meet at IIT Madras from December 16 – 23, 2017. A number of students produced many fine performances in the event and distinguished themselves. Notable among them was Sanugula Spandana (1st Civil Engineering) who finished fourth in the women’s high jump event with a jump of 1.25 m. The cricket team emerged victorious against IIT Dharwad and marched on to the Pre-quarterfinals, before bowing out against a strong IIT Kanpur team. The opportunity offered by the Pan-IIT event to compete and interact with students from all over India was relished by our students. Although there were no medals to show for their efforts, our students returned in high spirits and with a greater determination to prove their mettle in future Inter-IIT events.
