Goa bagged three of the four championships at the 7th U-11 and U-14 Boys and Girls Langdi National Championships played at Adarsh Gram, Amone-Poinguinim.

The championships held from December 28 to 30 last week were jointly organized by Langdi Sports Association of Goa (LSAG) and Adarsh Yuvak Sangh (AYS), Amone under the auspices of Langdi Federation of India (LFI).

The Goan teams bagged the double crown in under-11 category, while the hosts won the boys' title in under-14 category, but missed out on a medal in the girls' field. In the U-14 Boys category championship final, Goa defeated Telangana 64-42 to snatch the gold.

In the first set, Goa boys led Telangana by just one point, scoring 28 outs against Telangana’s 27. Goan boys then literally had a free run in the second session, scoring as many as eight points (attacks) in the first minute itself, ending the set at 36 points. Telangana boys could score just 15 points in the final set, settling for Silver. Maharashtra bagged the bronze.

In the U-14 Girls category, Tamil Nadu netted the gold after beating Telangana eves in the final, while Maharashtra had to again settle for the bronze. In the U-11 Boys and Girls category, Goa beat Maharashtra in both the finals to claim the titles.

Langdi races for boys and girls were also held and prizes awarded with Maharashtra netting most of the awards. Awards and prizes were also given to the best defender and attacker from each of the categories. Delhi, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh were the other teams that participated in the three-day national event.

Trophies and awards are given at the hands of Sports Minister Ramesh Tawadkar in the presence of LFI Convener Jay Bobate, General Secretary Suresh Gandhi, LSAG President Nirmala Khandeparkar and Vice-president Pratap Dessai. Organising Committee chairperson Savita Tawadkar welcomed, while Adarsh Yuvak Sangh Secretary Ashok Gaonkar proposed a vote of thanks.
