With a total domination over other fellow contestants, Sacred Hearts College lifts the golden trophy for the first time at MG university youth festival 2018
MG University Youth Festival Ashantham witnessed the rise of the new champions, Sacred Hearts College, as they dominated the competition from Day 2. The final day of the competition witnessed some great moments as the ex-students of Sacred Hearts College showed up at the event venues supporting their teams. Sacred Hearts College became the champions with a whopping 102 points, St. Teresa's was in the second place with 53, followed by RLV College and Maharajas College.
Poornasree Haridas, a playback singer and a student of Sacred Hearts College bagged the first prize for Light Music and Classical Music and part of the Eastern Group song team which bagged the second place said, “It’s the first time I have won the first place in light music and I would like to thank my family, teachers, friends and everyone who supported me”. The event ended with the ex-students and the current students of Sacred Hearts college shouting “We are one and we are number one”.
St. Teresa's College gave a pretty good competition during the last two days of the event but sadly Sacred Hearts had made all the required points to make sure they stay on the top no matter what happens. The final day’s events took an interesting turn as Maharaja’s college got disqualified for adding karakattam in the folk dance event, shattering the dreams of climbing back to the top.
Sacred Hearts College has won the prestigious title for the first time in history, as the champions for the last seven consecutive years, as St.Teresa’s college bagged the runners-up title. Noloufer T.A. of Fort Kochi Aquinas College was awarded Kalathilakam and this time there was Kalaprathibha as 15 contestants had the same points.
