CUHK Captures Four Championships in Inter-universities Competitions

CUHK athletes achieved excellent results in the Inter-universities Competitions on 1 and 2 March. The CUHK Men's and Women's Table Tennis Teams participated in the University Sports Federation of Hong Kong (USFHK) Table Tennis Finals on 1 March in Lingnan University. Both teams were defending champions.

The Women's Table Tennis Team successfully defended its title by beating the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) 3–1. The CUHK Men's Table Tennis Team faced a tough opponent—the Hong Kong University team in the final. Eventually CUHK won the close contest 3–2.

On 2 March, the CUHK Women's Soccer Team, which was the first runner-up last year, played against the CityU, the defending champion, at the Sir Philip Haddon-Cave Sports Field on CUHK campus. The CUHK team finally defeated its opponent 2–1 and became the champion of the first 11-a-side soccer competition (it was a 7-a-side soccer competition last year) of USFHK.

In the afternoon of the same day, CUHK Men's Volleyball Team played against the CityU team in the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong. Cheered on by CUHK Vice-Chancellor Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung and 100 fellow students, the CUHK team, who lost the first set, managed to turn the tables on their opponent and defeat them 3–1. CUHK clinched the men's volleyball championship for the first time in seven years.
