ATAC Announcements Week of Jan 31-Feb 4 2011

IASAS 2nd SEASON REPORT:

Basketball: A big thanks to all the ISM community for supporting the IASAS Basketball tournament. There were some very close and exciting matches played over the three days and our Bearcats boys and girls teams were in the thick of the action in the close matches. A one point win over Taipei on Friday morning and then a close 4 point loss to eventual runners up ISKL Friday evening had the gyms jumping and the fans screaming support for our boys team. The girls team made a great comeback win over ISKL and then pushed all other teams with tight defense and a scrappy ’never say die’ attitude in all their games. The Bearcats boys kept the excitement rolling in the finals on Saturday by taking out an overtime win against ISB to claim 3rd place and the Bronze medal. Our girls team with one win and 4 losses finished in 5th place overall. Well done to all players and coaches.

 Other IASAS Results:

Girls Touch defeated ISB in the final in Taipei and claimed IASAS Gold for the 2nd year in a row.

Girls Tennis won Gold and Boys Tennis won Bronze at a rain affected IASAS Tennis championships in Singapore

Boys Rugby placed 6th in Taipei

The ISM Swim team achieved very encouraging results at the IASAS Swimming Championships last week in Kuala Lumpur. It is the first time for many years that both our teams did not finish 6th, our boys finished 4th and our girls were leading JIS right up to the final event. A huge improvement from previous years and our freshman swimmers, now have the experience and are hungry for success next year, in fact they are already back in the pool training for next years IASAS at Jakarta International School.

 Boys finished 4th,

Girls finished a very close 6th with JIS beating them to 5th in the last event.
