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.
