It might be a little difficult for newcomers to adjust to the altitude five and a half thousand feet above sea level in Mussoorie. Physical intensity of any type is a challenge. A high-caliber basketball game becomes a true test of endurance.
This was the second consecutive Win Mumby win for Modern School Boys, who defeated Welham Boys' (Dehradun) in the final this year with relative ease, 56-37. The girls' final was a closer affair, but the Motilal Nehru School team from Rai (Haryana) upset Modern School's hopes for a double by defeating Modern's Girls' team 50-47.
Woodstock’s Student Life Coordinator and Head of Sports Ajay Mark said, “This year the standard was particularly high, with exceptional play and sportsmanship. The competition was closely fought, and in particular the semi-finals where only a handful of points separated the teams. We should remember that while this is a platform for school level players, some of the players we see here at Win Mumby could well be representing the country in the near future.”
