The tournament hosted by TIS, began with our players going up against a very experienced SSIS team. Although the odds were stacked against us, we played thorough, consistent volleyball, and were able to grab the first set 25-19. Unfortunately, the SSIS Boys stayed concentrated and won a close second set 25-23. However, BIS HCMC held their nerve and took a nail biting third set 15-12!
The second game of the tournament was between our BIS HCMC Boys and the favourites, TIS. The opponents started with a strong first set winning 25-15 in their favour. And unfortunately, the TIS Boys stayed concentrated and stormed through the second set 25-17
Our last match would determine whether we got 2nd or 3rd place. Determined to come back with a trophy, we executed a great first set against ISHCMC, winning 25-23. This gave us the incentive to display our best volleyball. However due to few key errors, we lost the second set 20-25. And unfortunately their momentum took them to win the the third-set 15-10.
This, however is a great improvement from last year, when BIS HCMC came out 5th. Through the tournament we not only achieved our short term goal of winning 1 set but have also gotten a head start for our long term goal, which is to give it our all in senior volleyball, next year.
