We carve out Olympians and Arjuna Awardees

Ever since its inception, Alphonsa College has been able to secure a unique place on the athletic map of Kerala. The College had the good fortune to nurture and bring to the limelight many star performers in the field of athletics. Smt. K.M. Celine, Preeja Sreedharan (G.V.Raja Award winners), Olympian Padmashree Shiny Wilson, Padmini Thomas (both Arjuna Awardees) and several others after them had their basic training on the grounds of Alphonsa. They took part in many inter-university, national and international tournaments and brought home medals and trophies galore. During the earlier years international volleyball players like Aleykutty Joseph, Reji Antony, Daisy Thomas, Jasmine George and Sreedevi P. R. were students of this institution. In the present generation, this illustrious tradition is being upheld by Asha Sebastian, Ajitha Madhavan and K.S. Bijimol trained under Malayala Manorama Talent Scheme, the Thoppil sisters- Sumi, Soumi, Somi and Soni- the queens of the aquatic world who have broken many existing records, Preeja Sreedharan (G. V. Raja Awardee) who took part in five international tournaments, A. Vigila, the only Malayalee athlete who took part in the Asian Junior Athletic meet held in Malaysia, Dhanya Purushothaman who broke the record of the 100 mts. event set by Smt. P. T. Usha at the Junior (under 22 years) State Athletic Championship, Sini Jose who represented India in the Beijing Olympics – the list goes on.

It is a matter of pride that Alphonsa College won the Mahatma Gandhi University Athletic Championship consecutively from1999 to 2003.The College team was selected as the best athletic team in the state in 2001, 2002 and 2003.The college won the Championship in swimming from the very beginning till date. A number of students represented the University in All India Interuniversity championships and were members of the state team in National championships.

Over the years the college has continued to win a number of laurels in the field of sports. The college teams won the Mahatma Gandhi University Championships in Athletics and Swimming. The credit of these unparalleled achievements goes to the Physical Education teachers like Mrs. Sumathy S. Nair (Rtd), Mrs. Mercy Joseph (Rtd), Sri. Thankachen Mathew, Ms. Nisha Philip and the coaches. Under their efficient guidance and coaching, Alphonsa has made a giant leap forward as a sporting power. Sri.Thankachen Mathew was selected as the Indian Coach for the first Asian Indore Athletic Championship held in Tehran in February 2004. He also participated in the C.E.C.S. Level II Course on Sprint and Hurdles in Jakarta organised by the International Association of Athletic Federations Regional Development Centre in July 2004 and was selected as the coach for the Indian University team for the World University Championship held at Bangkok in August 2007.
