Dear BSB Sport Followers,
All Secondary Sports have finished for the academic year with the conclusion of the DCB Lions Cup last weekend for U13 Rugby/U15-U13 Netball/U15 Tennis. Our U13 Rugby team posted their best finish in the 5 years we have played in this tournament coming 2nd Overall. On the Netball side, having only been playing Netball for two years we entered close to 50 girls spread over 4 squads of U15/U13. Though they did not place, the popularity of the sports keeps growing and growing. Given this growth, our U19 Netball team will start training again in September 2015 with BSB hoping to enter a team in the ACAMIS tournament hosted by our sister school BISS Pudong on 30th - 31st October 2015. We will also host our local 2nd Annual Netball Invite (Beijing/Tianjin schools) on 7th November 2015. Finally on the Tennis side, for the second straight year, Tamsin Hart from 9E won the U15 Girls Single Tennis Title. Throughout the tournament Tamsin didn’t lose a single set and won the final 8-0. Incredible result.
On the Primary Side, our FOBISIA squad is well into their games. You can follow all the results, pictures on BSB’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/britishschoolbeijing
The results I have so far: Day 1-Athletics 2nd Place Overall. Swimming 3rd Place Overall. Day 2-T-Ball: U9 1st Place (Champions), U10 2nd Place, & U11 6th Place. Final day of the games (Friday 5th June) all 6 squads will be playing in their Football tournament. Our squad returns back to Beijing on Saturday 6th June.
The following will take place at BSB: Tuesday June 9th (Y1 Football Invite) & Wednesday June 10th (Y2 Football Invite). All of Y1 & Y2 will be taking part in this mixed tournament against other Beijing schools in a football friendly.
