British International School, HCMC Girls U19 A
The A Team’s most recent game was on Thursday the 6th of October, and was played at home against ISHCMC.
The sets ended with scores of 17 -25 and 22 - 25 to ISHCMC. It was a close game, and I believe that we are definitely improving in terms of control and decision making during games. In practices and training, we do quite well and are developing skills quickly, but what we struggle with is using those skills during actual fixtures.
Recently, we’ve been more tense when playing, and today’s fixture against AIS may be our chance to become more confident in our skills in game. We’ve also been working on mixing combinations of players up, and this has helped us to work with everyone on the team, as well as figure out who we believe we work best with in order to use that to our advantage during fixtures.

It was a big day for us, as we played volleyball against two schools during the same afternoon. We started off a bit shy, but soon got the hang of the game. After losing the first half of the game verses ISHCMC, we manage to pick our heads up and continue with the optimism.
Soon without knowing, we managed to achieve our first win of the season against ISHCMC. Next came the game against AIS. Both sets were very intense and close according to the points. Just a couple of points behind, at the end we lost to AIS. We were all still really pleased and happy with the overall results. It was a great experience, where we learnt to all play together as a team and most importantly we enjoyed our time.

BIS HCMC 1 – 2 ISHCMC
The third game of the Volleyball season was against the ISHCMC, a strong and experienced team. As the underdogs, we managed to play simple yet effective volleyball, grabbing the first set by 2 points (25-23). Being more confident with a set under our belt, we felt that we could try more complicated tactics and shots which eventually cost us the second set (loss of 19-25). The BIS team went back to the basics and searched to force the opponents to do the mistakes, was effective although the loss came upon us with a 13-15 third-set.
Noticeable players were Josh with his threatening strikes and spikes, and Mylan with his powerful blocks that surprised the opponents.
