Lyceum, Nugegoda soaring to new heights in sport

Among the international Schools, Lyceum of Nugegoda has performed the best in the sporting events todate. The school have fared prominently in tennis, basketball, badminton, swimming, netball, cricket and scrabble in the inter international schools and open championships for 2007.

Mrs. Kumari Grero, coordinating Principal of Lyceum said that in addition to the school winning several titles they also organised and hosted under-13 cricket tournaments for the past six years, basketball and badminton tourney with great success.

Lyceum has plans to promote and organise waterpolo, diving and synchronised swimming with the support of the Sri Lanka Aquatic Sports Union.

Lyceum Nugegoda is proud to have produced two national champions in tennis. Two students were part of a team of 4 players to play in the trial in March 2008 for final selection to represent Sri Lanka as part of the national tennis team in the Davis Cup in April.

One of them was selected and the other was named as a reserve for the Davis Cup. This is the first time two students have been selected from the same school to play in the trials. One basketball player represented Sri Lanka as part of the Sri Lanka Boys Youth team championships held in Vietnam.

At scrabble a student represented Sri Lanka the World Youth Scrabble Championships in Malaysia. He received the highest Game Score Award at this event. He was also the winner of the Junior Division at the 19th All Island Scrabble Competition organised by the Sri Lanka Scrabble League.

At Inter International Schools level girls team emerged champions in the Badminton Tournament 2008. The school became runner-up at the swimming Championships, at which the squad established several new records. Lyceum also won the basketball, under-13, under-14 netball and boys under-15 netball and girls soccer tournaments. At the All Island Schools Badminton tournament the schools finished runner up.

Lyceum goes from strength to strength in sports due to several former sports administrators and coaches in their rank-namely Sam Chandrasena, Tilan Perera, J. A. S. Somachandra, Nishantha Perera, present Sri Lanka Waterpolo team assistant coach, Gishan Mannage, to name a few.

Mrs. Grero lamented that the Sri Lanka Schools Cricket Association does not give them the opportunity to participate in the Sri Lanka Schools cricket tournament, thereby being deprived of playing competitive cricket. It is hoped that the administrators will make every endeavour to grant them permission to play cricket.
