NTHU Retains the Meizhu Trophy

2022.02.27
The 54th annual Meizhu Tournament between NTHU and National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) came to a dramatic conclusion on the evening of February 27th with victories for NTHU’s men's and women's volleyball teams, making NTHU the overall winner in this year’s event. As a result, the Meizhu trophy will remain at NTHU.
 
The volleyball finals were held at the NTHU Gymnasium with about a thousand spectators in the stands and another 1,600 watching the live broadcast. The audience’s thunderous cheers alternated with utter silence as all eyes remained fixated on the movement of the volleyball.
 
NTHU president Hocheng Hong said that this was the most exciting Meizhu Tournament he has ever been to. He thanked all the participants, especially the NTHU Cheerleading Squad for their rousing cheers at just the right moment.
 
First came the men's volleyball match, and the NTHU team came out on top with a 3 to 1 victory. Observing from the stands, President Hocheng said that he was proud of their top-notch performance, winning attitude, and skillful moves, which were virtually free of error.
 
Next came the women's volleyball match, and the NTHU team won three sets in a row, making it look as easy as splitting bamboo, clinching the Meizhu trophy for NTHU.
 
This year's Meizhu Tournament was held at NTHU, and included ten official scored competitions, viz., table tennis, tennis, baseball, men's volleyball, women's volleyball, women's basketball, men's basketball, badminton, bridge, and chess. In addition, there were eleven other unscored exhibition matches, including soccer, kendo, archery, softball, go, and women’s table tennis. NTHU received one point each for its victories in badminton, baseball, women's basketball, men's volleyball, and women's volleyball, and an additional half point for its draw in chess, bringing its score to 5.5 points out of 10—a narrow victory if there ever was one.
 
The full-scale Meizhu Tournament was not held for the past three years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and a dispute over the rules.
