UPPER SCHOOL ATHLETICS
HISAC Table Tennis Tournament
HIS hosted the 2022 HISAC Table Tennis tournament on Saturday with students from 4 other schools competing in a Singles tournament in 3 separate age groups. – U11/U14/U19. Our teams have been practicing for several weeks and this tournament brought an end to their season. HIS had 29 students involved and faced some very tough competition in all divisions. We finished the event with 3 students finishing in second place in their respective divisions – Yolcy Zhang in U19 Girls, Raina Chaurasia in U14 Girls, and Vidor Han in U11 Boys. This was the first Table Tennis tournament hosted by HIS and it was fantastic to see tour students, coaches and many parents on hand to support our players. While our season for Middle School and Varsity teams is now over, students who wish to continue their Table Tennis throughout the year can do so through our Table Tennis CCA which is on every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday during CCA 2. Thank you to Coaches Lily Zhou and Lucia Wu for coaching this team during the season.
Middle School Floor Hockey
Last Thursday our Middle School Floor Hockey players mixed with a number of our HIS teachers to play some fun and friendly matches after school. Some very skillful players were matches by members of faculty with many years of hockey experience – including a number of Canadian teachers who had clearly grown up with a hockey stick in hand on a regular basis. We had so much fun that we will do it all again this Thursday with Round 2. Parents are again invited to come and watch the matches in the Upper Gymnasium from 3:30pm.
Each Varsity Team played 2 matches last week in a busy week for Varsity Basketball. Basketball has been the sport most affected in recent years by tournament cancellations so these opportunities to play matches is invaluable for our players as they prepare for ACAMIS in February.
The Varsity Girls travelled to play a combined team from Huili School Hangzhou/Wellington College on Monday, with an extended roster of 16 taking the court as the coaches continue to rotate line-ups to find their best player combinations. The girls lost the match but took away many things from this game to improve on. On Saturday the girls were on the court again at BASIS and played some great basketball to ultimately fall just short 30-26. Every week the girls continue to improve which is great to see!!
On Wednesday evening, the Varsity Boys took an early lead against the visiting Wycombe Abbey team. As all 15 players were rotated onto the court, their early lead was gradually narrowed by some determined opponents and ultimately our Dragons fell 4 points short. The boys then visited BASIS on Saturday and played a tight, low-scoring game which finished 18-21.
This Friday comes a big test for both boys and girls’ teams with the annual Students vs Teachers game in the Upper Gymnasium from 3:45pm.
