Sports results this week…..
Despite it being MAD week, the HKSSF matches have continued and despite our teams being short of players our coaches have managed to organise a team so we can remain competitive. This has been challenging to say the least but I guess it’s one of the consequences of SIS being competitive in so many sports!
Last Saturday our badminton, basketball, volleyball, rowing and tennis teams had matches across Hong Kong……..
The B Grade Boys Badminton team won vs SSCC Won 3-0
South Island division 1 Boys Tennis lost to La Salle 5.5-0.5. This was the first time we have got any kind of score against this team who always finish 2nd. Mom Mathias Grunberger
Girls beat HFCC 5-4 division 1 match. WoM Elisa Hirn
A grade girls basketball won 28-26 in a game that came down to the wire. Netra popped a 3 pointer with a minute or so remaining to tie the game, and then Caitlin made a shot with 10 seconds remaining to give us the win. Both Netra and Cait worked hard and deserve WOM honours.
U16 Girls Volleyball result: v. WIS lost 19-25/15-25. Quite an improvement on the last time we played them.
Our rowing team competed in the Youth Autumn Sculls event at middle island last saturday and did exceptionally well in the first regatta of the year. Notable results were:
U12 girls single: 1st Charlotte, 2nd Manon
U13 boys single: 1st Fred, 2nd Joshua
U14 boys single: 1st Sam, 2nd Oliver
U15 boys single: 1st Nick, 3rd Amos
U16 boys single: 4th Justin
Good results in the mixed school quads as well.
We are looking good for the schools regatta in November.
This week our A Grade boys basketball team have played their second HKSSF match of the season but unfortunately lost 30-38 although they will have learnt a lot from this game. MoM Dexter Brutus
Yesterday was the Division 2 HKSSF swim gala at Victoria Park swimming pool. Again, being in the middle of MAD week and work experience meant it was always going to be difficult for a lot of the swimmers to be able to compete but for those that were able to, there were some excellent performances. Notable mentions to Hei Sen Li, Leonardo Yip, Justin Kim, Victor Chao, Ian Mok, Sean Lee , Josh Wang for all making the finals next Thursday with excellent chances of medals but we also need to recognise all the other swimmers who competed, in some cases against boys 2 years older than them, to allow us to enter a team and hopefully maintain our position in Division 2 for next year. The spirit among the boys, their support for each other and their continuing support for swimming at SIS is outstanding and we thank them for their efforts. The girls team were heavily affected by a lack of swimmers although the girls who did swim all achieved the standard time in most cases and again, were excellent ambassadors for the school in terms of their effort and support for one another.
