Hemamali Girls College: The new force in school boxing

In just a year since starting the sport, Hemamali Girls College Kandy has made an impressive mark in the school boxing scene. The team recently clinched the Central Province Girls Boxing Championship title and secured the runner-up positions in two major events: the Junior Girls Championship and the National School Girls Championship.

This was the first time that Hemalali Girls College participated in the National Schools Boxing Championship, and they achieved the runner-up position. The credit for this success goes to the dedicated coaching of Jamitha Gayan, who also serves as the Secretary of the Sri Lanka Schools Boxing Association. The school’s boxing team, consisting of five talented boxers, displayed outstanding skills in the competitions.

One standout performance came from Chathuri Siriwardena of Hemamali Girls College, who managed to secure three Best Boxer Titles in the Girls Junior Best Boxer, National Schools Stubbs Shield Best Boxer, and Youth Boxing Championship Best Boxer categories, in a remarkable streak. Coach Jamitha Gayan expressed his commitment to nurturing talented boxers and bringing them to the forefront.

To further advance in the sport, the school’s Master-in-Charge plays a crucial role, but the support of the school and its alumni is equally important. With unified support, these young boxers have the potential to shine on the international stage and bring home medals.
