U14 Girls Volleyball
The girls had been training hard since September for their Volleyball City Championships so they were very excited when the day finally arrived. The team made an excellent start in their first match, using fantastic team work and a very focussed approach. This enabled to them to beat a talented ISHCMC side in two sets. The next game was always going to be tough against a very skilled TIS team. The BIS girls showed superb perseverance, working hard for every point. Despite all their efforts TIS proved too strong on the day and beat BIS by 2 sets. Coming back from their defeat the girls had a slow start against SSIS losing the first set 14-25. Unfortunately they realised their potential a bit too late in this game losing the second set 23-25. The final game of the day was very exciting and the girls were determined to finish on a high. The girls finished with a convincing win over CIS, placing them 3rd overall. The girls team have tremendous progress over the year and they should be very proud of their achievement. Congratulations to Aina Solis from 9S for winning player of the tournament.

U14 Boys Volleyball
The U14 Boys Volleyball season came to an end last week when 12 Year 9 boys went to SSIS to play in the SISAC Volleyball tournament. The boys played 4 volleyball fixtures against some quality opposition: TIS, ISHCMC, SSIS and CIS. At the beginning of the day we set a short term goal of winning some sets and a long term goal to continue playing volleyball next season. After all the games were played we finished in 5th position, unfortunately meaning our team was not placed. This does not tell the full story in that last year BIS did not have a U14 boys volleyball team at all. BIS did not enter the tournament, so to achieve our short term goal of winning some sets and playing some outstanding volleyball was indeed a valuable experience. 12 year 9 boys now have tournament experience against some exceptional teams and are ready to make the move to senior volleyball next year.
Player of the tournament goes to Dan Champion who was the U14 captain and led his team with confidence throughout the tournament.
