It has been a fabulous week for the TES sports teams. The boys U13 Basketball and U13 girls Volleyball teams both won their ISACK finals to become champions. Both teams put in terrific performances and fully deserve the titles after winning all 7 of their games during the season. It adds even more silverware to the TES trophy cabinet in what has been an amazing start to 2015. So far this year TES teams have won the BSME U13 athletics, netball and basketball trophies as well as being crowned overall champions, both the Y3/4 and Y5/6 KFSAC benchball competitions and now the ISACK U13 Volleyball and Basketball championships. An amazing fete that adds to the many trophies won since September to make this year of sport so far an amazing success story for TES.
U13 ISACK Girls Volleyball Final
TES 2 v 0 ESF (TES ISACK Champions)
TES girls U13 volleyball team played in the final of the ISACK competition on Tuesday. The final was played at FSIS against ESF. TES were favourites going into the game having won all 6 of their games so far during the season. The game started well for TES and they played some super volleyball to race into the lead. ESF pulled some points back but TES managed to serve the game out winning the first set 25-16. The girls served superbly well and were excellent on return. In the second set TES played even better and raced ahead. The girls won the set with ease 25-9 to become the 2015 U13 volleyball champions. It was a superb performance from the girls and they should be extremely proud of the season they have had and the results they have achieved. Well done to all of the squad: Mariam, Mia, Aysha, Davina, Lynn, Lana, Jennifer, Georgia and Eve.
U13 ISACK Boys Basketball Final
TES 45 v 24 KES (TES ISACK Champions)
TES boys U13 basketball team played in the final of the ISACK competition against KES at BSK on Tuesday. As with the girls the boys went into the final as favourites having won 6 out of 6 games. However, the boys knew that it would be a difficult task to beat a KES team with two former TES pupils in their squad. The boys started fantastically well and scored in the first few seconds after the tip off. TES played superbly well on defence and continued to score at a good rate with some lovely basketball. By the end of the 1st quarter TES had a commanding lead and by half time TES were firmly in control. The boys led 24 - 8 and the game was pretty much over at this point. In the 3rd quarter TES continued to dominate on defence and score baskets with some super passing moves. It was a pleasure to watch and it enabled substitutions to be made to give the younger players a taste of playing in a final. During the 4th quarter KES pulled a few baskets back but it was all too late and a final couple of baskets from TES put the game way out of KES reach. The game ended 45-24 to TES in what had been a superb performance from the boys. It has been a most enjoyable season and the boys should be very very proud of their efforts. The squad are now 2015 ISACK and BSME U13 basketball champions. A great honour and they deserve a lot of praise for their dedication and commitment over the past 5 months. Well done to all of the squad: Yousef , TJ, Aman, Kerem, Rian, Warner, Rayce, Jack, Andreas, Sam, Amer and Evan.
Next week there are no fixtures as the teams prepare for the final season of the year which will be boys volleyball and girls basketball.
