U14 Ping Pong Champs!
The BVIS Boys U14 Table Tennis team were crowned City Champions on Friday 9th December at SIS. The seven strong team of Loc, Joseph, Khoa, Kiet, Henry, Huy Anh and Minh made a great start to the competition winning 5/6 single games against the champions, for the past 4 years, SIS. Huy Anh had a particularly emphatic win over a strong SIS player. The boys then went on to win the remaining 12 singles matches, beating BIS and AMIS, Loc had a tough win over a strong top seed from BIS and Kiet played some calm and intelligent Table Tennis to win his two matches. Going into the doubles BVIS led SIS 17 – 12, after a nervy start Joseph put his earlier disappointment against SIS behind him to claim an important victory against the SIS top seeds, playing some consistent and powerful attacking play. Khoa and Henry were unlucky to lose a tight doubles match vs SIS but came back strongly to win their remaining 2 matches. In the remaining doubles matches against BIS and AMIS the boys showed great composure and consistency to win all of their matches giving them an outstanding final score of 25 wins from 27 matches, rightfully making them City Champs for the first time. All of the boys were a credit to the school with the way they conducted themselves on and off the court, their hard work in training over this term paid off and they should be incredibly proud of their achievement.
