The Shanghai Community International School Hongqiao girls’ basketball team had an incredible season. The team consisted of 9th to 12th graders, with the mix of ages and experience working to their advantage, as the girls worked hard, improved and bonded. In their games every girl had ample opportunity to develop her skills, take risks and learn.
The SCIS Hongqiao girls’ team went undefeated during the league. The team later entered the SISAC tournament, finishing second after a very strong SAS Pudong team. After the SISAC tournament, the girls soon entered the ACAMIS tournament which lead to the final game against RCHK. The match was tough, but with less than 30 seconds left, senior Greta Delfino buried a basket and gave the girls the lead. After this lead, two defensive stops and maintaining possession lead to a 20-19 victory to SCIS over RCHK.
The girls showed hard work, determination, sportsmanship and enjoyment throughout their competitions, with this season going down as the best season according to their PE Teacher, Kathryn Clouthier.
The Primary Debate team attended a sessions of the Modern United Nations (MUN) meeting at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi.
The debaters were impressed with the language the MUN speakers used, while presenting information using facts and research with clarity and in the appropriate tone of voice.
The Western International School Shanghai basketball program is on the rise. This season the young WISS Tigers ladies earned the U18’s Team of the Year award from That’s Shanghai. The U18’s team played in two leagues simultaneously, committing to over 25 games in 3 months. The comradery was incredible, as the young ladies bonded as a family this season.
In their first game the team had a tough loss by over 30 points, but the WISS Tigers kept their heads up and worked hard. The season ended with a winning percentage of over 70% throughout all their games. As the team continues to grow and the community becomes more engaged, the future looks bright for WISS basketball.
