3 December 2017 - Nord Anglia Games, Day 2
Wow what a day! Our first ever Nord Anglia Games gold medals in the boys teeball and we very nearly had gold medals all around!
Girls Games - Basketball
1st game - BVIS
With great offensive plays the girls looked brilliant going forward, creating space and plenty of shooting opportunities. Maddie had her hands up and got many rebounds. Jess scored two shots from the free throw line, enabling us to be up at the end of the first quarter. Jess continued to put pressure on BVIS as point guard, and all players listened well, developed their understanding of what their role on court was and played as a team. We won 9-4.
2nd game - BIS
The second game started off with strong plays from both teams and it could have gone either way. We were unlucky to go 6-2 down in the second quarter. In the third quarter Buth got herself in a fantastic space to score. In the final quarter we dominated the game with fantastic defending from Alisa which inspired the rest of the team to follow. Maddie scores the equaliser with 1 minute 30 seconds to go. With momentum in our favour and 2 minutes of added time, Regents dominated again. The shots were flowing but were not going in, this led to a basketball shoot out. Jess took the first and scored. Buth narrowly missed the second but with the score 1-0 and all three BIS students missing, Alisa stepped up and scored the winning basket and made us the winners of 7-6 game. All three girls did a brilliant job of holding their nerve and competing in the shoot out.
3rd game - Northbridge
After a long lunch break it took a long time to get going. As we started to wake up the baskets began to flow. With three baskets from Jess, one from Buth and Koapun we ended up dominating the game and won 12-6.
4th game - St. Andrews
This was the gold medal match! The girls competed against a very strong St Andrews side. Despite wave upon wave of St Andrews offence, we never gave up. We grew as the game developed. We were down by 12 points at half time but we persevered and the score didn’t reflect the quality of basketball we produced in the game. St Andrews played a strong game and deserved gold. Overall we deserved a silver and are very proud of what the girls have achieved this weekend. Maddy and Buth went on to win gold in the shooting stars competition. Well done ladies!
Boys Game - Teeball
1st game - BVIS
An excellent start to the tournament with Regents winning 20-10. After a change in the original batting order, the boys put in a superb display with the bat and worked hard to stop BVIS coming back into the game.
2nd game - BIS
Regents came out fighting with an excellent display in the field. We showed significant signs of improvement with brilliant catches and some tight fielding. Unfortunately BIS put on a batting masterclass and managed to narrowly win 16-14.
3rd game - NCIS
A convincing 20-6 victory for the Lions. Another amazing fielding display which limited Northbridge to just 2 runs in the first innings. Regents players demonstrated a vast array of big hits and dominated this match.
4th game - STA
we went into this knowing that a victory would mean that we were guaranteed a medal, but it would go down to how many points had been scored as Regents, STA and BIS were drawn on points. We shut STA out to just 4 runs in their first innings and had already won the game by the time STA came in to bat for their second innings. Regents needed to beat STA by 4 or more runs to win the tournament and we did precisely that on the last ball of the game.
It’s official! Regents are the 2017-18 Nord Anglia Games Boys Teeball Champions! An amazing performance from all 12 players. Worthy winners against excellent opposition.
Thank you to Mr Harrowell for leading the way this weekend and Mr Marwood and Mr Linine for coaching them during training this term.
2 December 2017 - Nord Anglia Games, Day 1
What a day we have had! Medals all round for our young lions.
First Game - vs BVIS
We opened our Teeball campaign against BVIS. With a strong fielding team we came in at the half way mark 7-3 up. Pitcher Jess and Alissa combined brilliantly to ensure not many BVIS players reached first base.
Painuan has the hit of the half, where she was just pipped Home by the ball to stop her achieving a much deserved home run.
In the second half we played superbly. Again, great combinations between pitcher and first base. A great team performance ensured we won 13-7.
Game 2 - STA - the local derby!
What a game. It was such a great opening innings. A great all round performance but just pipped by some great STA batting.
Although Jess dominated the fielding with two great catches and scored a home run, we could not stop STA winning 19-12.
Game 3 - BIS
First innings - Alissa started us off with a 'triple whammy', meaning 3 people out on one ball. She caught out the batter, tagged out the player on her base and threw out the player on 2nd. What a play!
There were nice link up plays between Jess and Mia to get players out at 3rd. The first innings was signed off in style by a home run by Jess. 10-4 to Regents at half time.
We started the 2nd innings the way we finished the first - on fire!
2 catches in a row from Jess and some great fielding by the whole team made it 12 - 10 to BIS going into out last batting innings. We needed 3 runs to win.
With home runs by Victoria and Jane, Regents batted superbly and we were victorious with a score of 17-12.
Game 4 - NICS
We needed to win to secure silver and that's just what we did! The girls' spirit and confidence was high. With everyone on the pitch performing to the best of their ability, we dominated the game and lead 18-1 going into the Naga's last innings. Overall we were 18-4 winners and secured the much deserved silver medal.
All the girls performed brilliantly and we couldn't be prouder. Fantastic work by Coach Gina. Thank you for all your effort and hard work. The girls did you proud!
Boys Basketball Results
- RISP 14-0 Bvis
- St. Andrews 15-6 RISP
- Bis 33-7 RISP
- RISP 10-2 Northbridge
The boys worked extremely well as a team today and as a result came away with bronze medals!
The first game against BVIS saw the team dominate the game from the tip off. The Lions took possession in the first quarter with the score being 6-0. The second half of the game was much improved and the pace picked up. The lions had a stronger defense strategy and more successful shooting opportunities which led to a 14-0 win overall.
Although we lost to St Andrews with the end score of 15-6 this did not reflect the effort, determination and will power the lions kept up throughout each quarter! We had so many shots. Unfortunately we just could not convert them.
The team lost to BIS, however they fought on and never gave up. The Lions created many shooting opportunities but were unable to convert them consistently unlike BIS.
Lastly we were up against Northbridge. Both sides played some strong basketball but Regents again held possession with the final score being 10-2.
The boys all worked extremely hard as a team and developed as the tournament progressed and should be really proud of their efforts. We definitely are!
13 November 2017 - U11 Girls Football vs St. Andrews
The girls came into this game a little nervous following their defeat to St. Andrews. However, those nerves quickly went away as we produced some excellent attacking football. Jess was dangerous as always and almost scored a great goal from the left wing, but she was denied by the woodwork. St Andrews were also playing well and it was them who got the break through to put themselves 1-0 ahead. The Lions are very resilient and responded perfectly with a goal less than a minute later. A great run down the right from Alisa followed by a cross allowed Victoria to score a stunning goal from the edge of area. Both teams continued to create chances, but it was St Andrews who again went in front after a slight mix up in the Regents defense. Again, Regents came back strong and Angie scored her 4th of the season after a great solo goal to make it 2-2 at half time. The second half was much like the first, with both teams playing well in a very tense game. Jess continued to be dangerous and again was denied by the woodwork late in the game.
The Lions almost scored a spectacular winner in the last minute as Victoria had a shot from near the halfway line that went inches over the bar. 2-2 the game finished with the U11 girls remaining unbeaten in the league.
13 November 2017 - U10 Girls Football vs St. Andrews
The U10's Lions put on their best performance yet against St. Andrews. The team were strong from the get go. Our star defenders, Kayleigh and Jess, held off the opposition for much of the first half while our strikers, Pauletta and Miki made several good runs, with the help of midfielders Lily B and Kao-Pun. Our goalkeeper, Sarah also delivered a star performance, making many great saves.
Unfortunately a goal got through making the score 1 - 0 to St. Andrews by half-time. However, the team kept their heads held high and dominated the second half. They had many attempts to score with several of the shots narrowly missing their target thanks to both Tali and Lily G making some excellent runs. The final result may not have been in our favour, but this match showed the girls just how much they have improved as a team and as individual players.
10 November 2017 - Girls Football: Regents 7-0 Rugby
As soon as the game started, they were very focused. Jess was dangerous from the start and her hard work paid off as she scored 2 goals in quick succession; one was a following a great run and a good finish into the bottom corner. The Lions continued to roar and almost scored a number of goals through Angie, but she couldn’t quite take advantage of the chances thanks to some good goalkeeping from the opposition keeper. Regents were fully on top and scored 2 more goals before half-time thanks to Victoria’s great strike and then from an unlikely source in Mia, who scored her first goal for the team. 4-0 it remained until half-time.
Regents continued to dominate the game and had many chances to score, but good defending was making it difficult to get the next goal. They finally did though and it was Mia again (who clearly now had a taste for goals) who made it 5-0 with a good shot from the edge of the area. Late in the game Mia then completed her hat-trick after a great run and shot at the near post. Jess came back on the pitch and then also completed her hat-trick with a very, very powerful shot that flew into the back of the net. A great win for Regents who are now unbeaten in their last 5 games. Full time score 7-0! Amazing. Well done girls. You made Mr Poppleton proud.
10 November 2017 - U15 FOBISIA Update: Day 3
It has been a fantastic day here in Phuket and we are proud to announce that all 29 members of the U15 FOBISIA squad are now medal winners!
The third day of a three day competition is always physically difficult but the team showed no signs of fatigue and performed fantastically, winning bronze in both the boys football and girls basketball competitions.
We also received the overall results from the Athletics and Swimming, once again our Lions have come away with silverware finishing in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
3 days, 5 trophies and a staggering 104 medals!
8 November 2017 - U15 FOBISIA Update: Day 2
Another scorching day here in Phuket, I can confirm the Regents Lions have continued their winning ways from yesterday!
The girls had a tough day at the football competition; after a slow start they picked up some momentum in the later part of the day to finish in 5th place in a highly competitive league format.
The boys basketball competition saw the Lions dominate in the group stages, progressing to the semi-finals from their pool in first place. Despite their best efforts the Lions lost out to KTJ in the semi-final. However, in the 3rd and 4th play-off match against Uplands, the Lions returned to their winning form with a convincing performance to seal the bronze medal and take the U15 FOBISIA medal tally to 80!
One more day and hopefully some more medals to go!
7 November 2017 - U15 FOBISIA Update: Day 1
Wow what a day! Incredibly hot and humid conditions here in Phuket but the Regents Lions have been a true credit to us all!
They performed fantastically in the pool this morning, walking away with 34 medals. The afternoon athletics meet was was no different and through real grit and determination, they won an impressive 32 medals. This brings us to a grand total of 66 medals for a day 1, a great day's work, I am sure you will agree!
The team is confident and looking forward to increasing the medal count over the course of the next two days!
6 November 2017 - U15 FOBISIA Update
The Regents Lions have landed in Phuket and are all very excited and looking forward to the opening meal this evening.
Tomorrow they will compete in a swimming gala in the morning and an athletics meet in the afternoon. The first day is always very physically demanding for our young athletes.
30 October 2017 - Year 6 Girls Football: Regents 5-0 GIS
The game started quite slowly, with both teams clearly still tired on their first day back off holidays. Soon though, Regents took control of the game and started to grow in confidence, with Jess creating many chances down the left hand side. Angie was brought on as a sub and within a minute had scored her first goal after a wonderful long ball from Jess. Minutes later, Angie had her second after winning the ball in the area and finishing well with her left foot. At half-time the score was 2-0. The second half started the way the first ended, with the Lions very much on top. It wasn’t long before Angie had her hat-trick as she tapped home a long range shot from Jess that would have gone just wide. Regents continued to create many chances and Jess eventually got her reward with two goals late on to help a comprehensive win. GIS did have some chances, but a wonderful performance by Mai in defence ensured their chances and shots on goal were limited. A wonderful all round performance from the girls saw a full-time score of Regents 5 GIS 0. A terrific start to the league.
17 October 2017 - ESAC Cross Country Race at St Andrews
The Regents squad included over 90 students and it was great to see so many students getting involved and challenging themselves over a difficult 3km course. A special mention should go to our medal winners across the various age groups:
Paloma - 3rd Girls U13
Lucas - 1st Boys U15
Luis - 1st Boys over 15
Ricard - 3rd Boys over 15
Great performances from those individuals and by all those who participated, a fantastic effort, GO LIONS!
9 October 2017 - U10 Boys Football: Regents 4-2 GIS
The U10 boys recovered from their loss to St Andrews with a fantastic performance against GIS. They showed excellent team spirit after falling behind 1-0, and went on to win 4-2. Go Lions!
6 October 2017 - U11 Boys Football: Regents 5-3 GIS
This was the boys' first home game of the season. With a rotation in squad players, the boys worked hard to form new playing formations and establish new roles within team. Despite a slow start and being 3-1 down at half time, our team began to settle, began to defend well and began to pass the ball more effectively in the second half and stage an epic come back! Everyone played fantastically and a big well done to Lorenzo, Joy and Saroot on scoring our goals to ensure we won 5-3! Well done to all the boys.
4 October 2017 - Secondary Inter-House Cross Country
The Inter-house cross country has been taking place over the last 2 weeks in the Secondary PE lessons. The students have performed fantastically and shown real grit and determination in completing a demanding 3km run. The Cross country was our first house competition of the year and gave our students a great opportunity to challenge themselves and earn points for their respective houses.
The winning house this year in the Secondary school was Fire (Red house) by a staggering 51-point margin, with Earth (Green House) in second, Water (Blue house) in third and Air (yellow house) in fourth.
Congratulation to all those who took part and complete the Cross Country challenge!
29 September 2017 - Regents 22 – 8 Garden International School
What a fantastic start to our basketball season. The Lions ended the game, in just the same fashion as they started it. Well organised, confident and composed. We played great defence and turned over the ball on numerous occasions, which allowed for some excellent baskets to be scored. There were some great individual baskets scored by Manon, Hong Yok and Zainab, as well as some fantastic team baskets scored by Izzy, Ling Ling and Sophia. All the players worked so well as a team and this ensured we dominated the game. Kathleen and Hong Yok were great point guards and lead by example. Zainab was voted overall MVP for her excellent contribution to the game: Congratulations Zainab.
Well done to all players and thank you to all supporters and squad players who encouraged and cheered for the Lions throughout the match.
27 September 2017 - Regents Lions Swim Squad Duathlon
Over 30 keen members of the school swim squad, from Year 2 to Year 11, completed a challenging Duathlon course on Tuesday morning before school, combining distance running, a variety of individual skill stations along the way, and finished with a 300m swim in the school pool! With an excellent, supportive atmosphere created by the entrants themselves, the teachers and the supporting parents, all members of the squad (and the participating teachers) had a hugely positive experience, encouraging each other, competing in a friendly manner and celebrating a hugely successful event – well done to all!
27 September 2017 - Primary Football
Our Lions season started on Monday with our U9, U10 and U11 Football teams competing against St Andrews Garden Valley. All our squads were in action, for full match reports please see the schools social media platforms.
The first match of the season for the Year 6 boys ended in a closely fought defeat to St Andrews.
Despite having never played together before the team gelled well and scored two excellent goals in the 2nd half (Joy and Lorenzo). Debuts for Praneel, Saroot, Jaydin and Harry showed they will be pushing to start in future fixtures.
Vladimir gave a MOTM performance. Showing a total disregard for his safety, his performance in goal kept St Andrews in sight throughout the game.
Well played boys
27 September 2017 - Nord Anglia Team
After 50 students trialled for a spot on our Nord Anglia team, our coaching staff were faced with an extremely difficult task of selecting just 12 Boys and Girls from Years 5 and 6. I am pleased to confirm all squad players have been successfully selected and continue to train for the Bangkok tournament in December. Congratulations to those selected and well done to all those who trialled, it was an incredible turn out.
For any children interested in representing the Lions at the U10 and U11 FOBISIA competition during May in Phuket they should begin to look at joining these CCA options in the new CCA selection next term in order to improve their technical and tactical abilities (Football, Tee ball, Athletics and Swimming).
