UPPER SCHOOL ATHLETICS
Middle School Ultimate Frisbee
On Tuesday 12th November our Middle School Ultimate Frisbee teams participated in a friendly game with Huili School Hangzhou. This was the culminating game for our Middle School team and gave them a chance bring together the skills they had practiced during the season with Coaches Mr. Greg Mazzeo, Mr. Liam O’Shea and Mr. Patrick Wells
A large contingent of 20+ students was eager to get on the field and play and although they found the opposition a bit bigger and more athletic, our young HIS Dragons continued to play a spirited game for the full 40 minutes. Regular rotations of 7 players kept everyone as warm and active as possible on a chilly night under the floodlights of Dragon Field. We thank the parent cheer squad who came and supported our team. Varsity Frisbee season will begin in the spring and no doubt some of the stand-out players from this middle school team are likely to get an invitation to join the Varsity season.

The boys and girls teams get an early season hit-out this Thursday in the Dragon’s Lair with friendly games with Chinese International School Hangzhou (CIS). Parents and spectators are welcome. Games tip-off at 5pm and will be played simultaneously across both gymnasia, (Boys in Upper Gym, Girls in Lower Gym). The Boys then follow this up with their HISAC tournament on Saturday.

Congratulations to all 123 Golden Dragon swimmers who participated in the Shanghai Swim League Round 2 Swim Meet at The Wave. It was a great and rewarding day for all, with a lot of great swims and many achieving a new personal best. The meet would not have been possible without all the parents, faculty, staff, coaches, and student-athletes, who volunteered (endured the warm pool deck temperature!) Thank you.
The first swim meet using a full six lanes with the new timing system was a success, and we are looking forward to the 2022 Hangzhou International Youth Swimming Open Championship this Sunday, November 20, 2022.
