Closing Ceremony of the 2017 UWI Inter-Campus Games
Regional Headquarters, Jamaica. Friday, June 02, 2017. At the close of the 2017 UWI Inter-Campus Games on Thursday 1 June, 2017, two points separated the Mona campus defending champions from their closest rivals. Mona amassed 102 points to edge out Cave Hill with 100 points. St. Augustine closed with 76 points, coming in third place and the Open Campus team, which competed only for the second time in the Games’ 52-year-history, earned 18 points.

From May 25-June 1 teams—comprising over 500 student athletes—competed for athletic glory in a biennial sporting tradition. The Games included 10 sporting disciplines: basketball, football, tennis, swimming, table tennis, track and field, volleyball, cricket, netball and 6-a-side hockey. It is one of the few opportunities where the students get together as one University. The tournament themed “The Making of Champions” saw athletes test their talent and skills in ten disciplines and the atmosphere of friendly rivalry at the Games’ kick-off continued during the closing ceremony held at the Cave Hill campus.
