Athletes from the St. Joseph's Sports Academy dominated the State athletics meet in Coimbatore bagging the overall championship for men and women.

That St Joseph's boys cornered as many as 29 medals (12 gold, eight silver and nine bronze) is enough to underline the supremacy. In all St. Joseph's won 19 gold medals.

The women's contingent hit a tally of 29 medals, which included seven gold, 11 silver and eight bronze.

Prem Kumar was declared the best athlete.

In the men's section St. Joseph's topped the table followed by Tamil Nadu Police, while the women's team was followed by SDAT. A lot of credit for this achievement should go to the chief coach and manager, Dr. Nagarajan. The athletes were felicitated by Dr. Babu Manoharan, Director, St. Joseph's College of Engineering on return.
