LUMS students continue to make their university proud.

In the early rounds, the LUMS team earned a series of hard-fought victories against the University of Lahore, Forman Christian College and Government College University, and came out at the top of a pool of 58 teams. They were among the top nine teams that went onto compete in the second round, where they defeated contenders from Lahore College for Women University, Superior University, University of Management and Technology, University of Okara and the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences by 2-0 in each game. Ultimately, after a tough match, the LUMS Volleyball team were defeated by University of the Punjab.
