Week 4 Aug 29-31, 2017

Last Saturday there were some cancelled matches due to the forecast heavy rain that did not really eventuate. Once local school officials cancel Saturday activities all other districts generally follow and matches scheduled here at ISM will be affected as school teams are not allowed to come and play. We shall do our very best to work with the local schools to reschedule the matches over the coming weeks. There may be some make up matches scheduled for this coming Friday which is an ISM school holiday. Teams will be notified by end of day Wednesday this week if they have a game this coming Friday.

Sept 15-17 is the first pre IASAS exchange weekend. ISM will host the boys and girls soccer tournament with ISB/TAS flying in along with Ateneo University mens/women’s team joining us for a  great weekend of soccer. Our XC team will fly to Bangkok for a race weekend and our volleyball teams are off to Taipei. These exchange matches provide great preparation for the season ending IASAS tournaments in mid October.
