UMM KICKS OFF 14TH STUDENTS SPORTS WEEK


The Vice Chancellor of University of Mkar, Mkar, on the 22nd may 2019 declared the 14th Students Sports Week open. The event which kicked off at about 10:30am at the University’s Football pitch was filled with excitement among the students and staff who were decked fully in sports wears. The Vice Chancellor Prof. Dickson Iorwuese Gernah who was represented by the Registrar of the University, Rev. Emmanuel Teryila Atsor, called on the students to show their talents but should restrain from using their fists against each other as it was better to compete as brothers and sisters. Speaking further, the Registrar, pointed out that, sports was quintessential to mental well being and balance of the human body. However, students should not forget the sole aim for which they were in the University; which is to obtain a certificate which hinged on learning and character. Other management staff who were at the opening ceremony include, the Bursar, Acting Librarian, The Chaplain, Dean of Student Affairs, Deputy Registrar PG,. Other dignitaries also include the IPPRO, Student Union President, a visiting Divisional Police Officer from Ushongo and many others. After the opening ceremony with a football kick at the centre of the pitch by the Registrar, the defending football champions from the Department of Sociology engage the Department of Business Management/Economics in an opener. The defending champions came off stronger; as they humbled their counter-parts by 2 goals to one (2 – 1). The Students Sports Week had 3 different sports lined up in all, of which, football was restricted to male students. Volleyball and Basketball was open to both sexes. The competition which is billed for only three days will end on the 24th day of May, 2019.
