Bhubaneswar: In keeping with the trend of women sportspersons bringing laurels for Odisha, three girls from Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) have been selected in the Indian Under-20 Girls’ Rugby team, which would represent the country at the Asia Under 20 Girls Rugby 7s tournament to be held at King’s Park in Hong Kong from August 4 – 5 this year.
The KISS girls selected for the tournament are Basanti Pangi, Manjulata Pradhan and Rajani Sabar – all of them pursuing their graduation courses. The selected trio also participated in the recently concluded Paris World Games (PWG) Rugby 7s 2017 event.
The Indian team will leave for Hong Kong on Wednesday to participate in the AR U20 7s Series.
Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS, congratulated the girls and wished them success in the tournament.
Notably, KISS students are showing their talent and touching new horizons of success these days due to the value added education, proper training and guidance they are getting at the largest tribal residential institution in Asia.
