Golf 2015 – Play it up!


 The Cathedral Alumni Golf Tournament held on 14th November, 2015 at the picturesque Willingdon Sports Club was well attended by a cross section of some 28 alumni. In the days preceding the event, there were a number of light hearted emails floating around setting up matches to renew life long rivalries dating back to our school days. Wagers, excuses, reshuffling the draw, you name it, we heard it all.

Nett, nett, a great day of golf hosted by the evergreen golden girls Pushpa Bhatia and Meher Amersey, ended with a sumptuous meal and several mugs of beer. Everyone was a winner that beautiful sunny day.

The game started with a jump ball at 10:30 am in middle school. It was refereed by the school coach. The X-Cathedral team had a very good beginning with Akshay Multani taking some excellent 3 pointers and Sumit Chawla’s  defence not allowing the school team to score much. The excellent teamwork took the score to 44 – 2 in the first half the game looked pretty one-sided. The school team had a comeback in the second half, scoring 10 points in quick succession bringing the score to 46-12. Rithvik Hegde stood strong  and tore through the school defense with his layups and three points. The final tally at the end was X-Cathedralites  66; Current team 14. It was a smooth game with no fouls played with true sportsmanship by all.
