BIS HCMC Compete in Nord Anglia Games 2017

The second annual Nord Anglia South East Asia Games were held at St Andrews School in Bangkok last weekend. The tournament gives students from Years 5 and 6 the opportunity to compete in Basketball and Teeball competitions against our fellow Nord Anglia schools. 24 students from across both TX and An Phu Primary campuses had been training hard for 10 weeks. There was a lot of excitement on Friday morning as we boarded the plane to Bangkok, hoping all the early morning sessions would pay off…

DAY 1

GIRLS TEEBALL

A highly competitive girls teeball competition kicked off at the weekend. First up for BIS HCMC were hosts St Andrews. Michelle Tran and Maya Zesiger led the fielding attack, but unfortunately the girls slipped to a narrow defeat. Next was Northbridge. Some fantastic hitting by Dieu Ngoc and Mei Okada saw the girls claim their first victory of the day. The next two games were hard to take. A fantastic catch then throw by the Regents pitcher managed to get 4 of our girls out in 1 play. This play swung the game and led to a 17-15 defeat. Equally agonizing was a missed catch in our fielding innings in the final game vs BVIS Hanoi which led to a 20-18 defeat. 5 more runs across 2 games would have seen the girls take Silver, but instead they fell to a very close 4th place. The girls were disappointed but should be proud of their performances. This disappointment would lead to the character they showed on day 2.

BOYS BASKETBALL

The recently concluded Nord Anglia Basketball Tournament on Saturday, 2nd December was a huge success for BIS HCMC Boys Basketball team. The games started strongly with the team showing great enthusiasm and energy the entire tournament. With good coordination, team work, strong defence and excellent passing and shooting in all matches the team were the strongest contenders. So without any losses, the BIS HCMC Boys Basketball Team were eventually declared the champions.

Congratulations to the BIS HCMC Boys Basketball team for a tremendous achievement. All your efforts and hard work during practises have paid off.

DAY 2

GIRLS BASKETBALL

The girls set off to the basketball eager to put the disappointment of just missing out on a medal the day before behind them. They started brilliantly by defeating NISC with standout performances from Mei Okada, Hannah Weston and Maya Zesiger. They then lost to eventual champions and the outstanding team St Andrews.

Next were two games which aged both their coaches and parents by considerable years. A 6-6 draw with Regents was played out, then overtime still couldn’t separate the teams, meaning a sudden death free throw shootout was needed. The Regents girls kept their nerve and agonizingly took the win. The final game v BVIS Hanoi would decide 3rd place and the final medal position. In an end to end game BIS were trailing 7-6 with 56 seconds left on the clock. Michelle gathered the ball and dribbled to the corner of the key, before looping a shot towards the basket. It bounced around the ring and backboard before finally dropping in to give BIS the lead. The longest 50 seconds ever then followed. The girls and specifically our rebound queen Tadala Nkhoma defended superbly. The buzzer sounded to screams of joy as the girls came away with a richly deserved medal. The character and determination to come back from the shootout defeat and being behind in a big game is something all players should be proud of.

BOYS TEEBALL

On Sunday, 3rd December, it was the turn of the BIS HCMC Primary Boys Teeball team. It was a whole day full of thrill and excitement. The team had worked hard during training to prepare for this tournament and their hard work paid off.

The team showed excellent hitting and fielding. The team’s defense and speed were consistent, which gave BIS 3 wins and 1 loss, this lead to a triple tie for 1st place. A count back of the 3 teams runs in each game was needed, and BIS HCMC came out 3rd place.

The team might have felt a little disappointment on the result, however, this did not lessen our spirit. Congratulations and great work to the team for all the effort.
