DEFENDING champions Ndejje University underlined their determination to retain their Inter-University Games title after posting impressive results on Thursday.

The Luweero giants showed why they are still the team to beat after winning gold medals in swimming, woodball, athletics, and darts in both men and women on Thursday. 

Ndejje have also qualified for the finals in football, basketball, and volleyball against contenders UCU, MUBS, Nkumba and KIU.

In women’s table tennis, Kampala International University emerged champions after ejecting Ndejje to set up an all-KIU final.

In tennis, UCU was crowned the champion of the men’s tennis men title against Ndejje after David Oringa won 6/3, 6/4.

In football, University League champions Kampala University were not shown any respect as they were eliminated by hosts Uganda Christian University 5-4 on penalties after the match ended 3-3.

According to the UCU team coach Jackson Nyiima, both teams had prepared well for the games.

Nyiima also emphasized that his players were not fully focused on the game.

The event, which has drawn 20 teams in 16 disciplines, ends Friday.
