Dubai: The Emirates National School (ENS), Sharjah blanked the New Indian Model School (NIMS), Dubai to claim the boy’s under-19 crown at the CBSE Cluster Volleyball Tournament that was held at the Pace International School, Sharjah over the weekend.
With Mohammad Zamrud dominating with his lethal jump spike serve and timely blocks, there was very little the NIMS lads could do as ENS walked away with the title with an emphatic 25-11, 25-18, 25-11 win. Zamrud was rightly selected as the best spiker of the tournament that had this year attracted a record 29 teams representing schools from across the country.
Zamrud was well supported by teammates Abishek, Abu, Adwaid, Ajay, Adnan and libero Aaron.
The victory means that the ENS team will now represent the UAE for the third time at the CBSE National Games to be held in New Delhi at the end of the month.
In the girls under-19 final, Delhi Private School, Dubai got the better of their counterparts from Sharjah, while Gulf Asian School, Sharjah defeated Our Own English School, Dubai for the girls under-17 crown. The boy’s under-17 final was an all-NIMS affair with the Dubai school defeating their colleagues from Sharjah.
Asif Mohammad, Director of Pace Group was the chief guest and presented the trophies to the champions and individual award winners.
