LAHORE: (Saturday, April 23, 2016): Punjab University has won 39th Higher Education Commission Inter-University Boys Volleyball Championship 2015-16 by defeating University of Central Punjab here at New Gymnasium, New Campus on Saturday.

Superior University grabbed third position in the competition. As many as 18 teams from different universities including Government College University Faisalabad, Lahore Leads University, Karachi University, Qauid-e-Awam University of Sciences and Technology Nawabshah, Alhamd Islamic University Quetta and Agha University Karachi participated in the competition. The prize distribution ceremony was held at New Gymnasium in which PU Registrar Prof Dr Liaqat Ali participated as chief guest. Director Sports Shamsa Hashmi, Deputy Director Students Affairs Zubair Akram, officials and a large number of players were present on the occasion.

Addressing the ceremony, Dr Liaqat Ali said that sports activities were ignored in Punjab University in the past and the incumbent administration under the leadership of Vice Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran had taken special interest in promotion of sports activities on campus. That’s why, he said, PU students were taking top positions in sports competitions. Later, prizes were distributed among the winning teams.
