Don Bosco Matunga keeps producing champions in the field of sport, and 2018-19 was no exception. Besides the many accolades in sports -team and individual-two of our budding sportspersons were honoured for their prodigious sporting talent in May-June 2019.
In cricket young Sahil Jadhav of Std IX D has been invited for a cricket exchange program with Wells Cathedral School, UK beginning from 5th May 2019. (The departure was delayed on account of visa/paperwork procedures). This program is in recognition of his talent at cricket and he will be mentored in cricket along with his studies for a period of close to two months during his stay in UK.
In tennis, the young prodigy Master Shivam Kadam of Std X-B has been awarded the Maharashtra State Lawn Tennis Dr. Apte Memorial Scholarship 2018 for being ranked no. 2 in Maharashtra in the Boys U/14 category at a function held at Cooperage, Mumbai on 1st June 2019.
