NTHU and NCTU Came Out Even in the Meichu Tournament
At this year’s annual Meichu Tournament both NTHU and National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) won five of the ten events, resulting in a draw. NTHU won the chess, tennis, women’s basketball, men’s volleyball, and table tennis contests, while NCTU won the badminton, baseball, men’s basketball, bridge, and women’s volleyball contests.
 
In his speech following the tournament, President Hocheng congratulated all the NTHU contestants for their memorable performances. He also stressed that the most important part of the Meichu Tournament is not who wins, but the long-term friendships which have emerged over the years, such that everyone comes out a winner.
 
Ever since the first Meichu Tournament was held in March of 1969, one of its primary goals has been to encourage students to participate in activities which cultivate physical fitness and other non-academic skills. The tournament promotes friendship and cooperation between the two universities and was named after the presidents of NTHU and NCTU at the time, Mei Yi-qi and Ling Chu-ming, respectively.
 
The three-day tournament opened on March 9 at the NCTU stadium with rousing performances by the cheerleading squads of both schools. There was also a spirited rendition of the NTHU school song led by the Seagull-K Vocal Band. Despite the heated competition, during the awards ceremony the contestants exhibited the spirit of sportsmanship by applauding one another.
