However, the boys in the next game with ISE experienced a bitter defeat with six points short. But the boys did not lose their spirit and remained optimistic and continued with their full efforts. After they were rejuvenated with lunch, they gained a great victory against VIS of 55 to 21. The girls also ended the day very successfully, winning all three games against HIS, NISC, and VIS. The passion of the players was bursting even during the weekend. Many students and parents came to watch the games and united in cheering the players. As a result of the SSIS spirit, the SSIS boys took fourth place and girls second place. Even though there is always only one team that wins first place, we are very proud of all eight teams that tried their best and with good sportsmanship, respecting each other.

This month, our HS basketball teams participated in the local tournament, SISAC. All SSIS teams did extremely well placing, at least, in the top four.
In the longest running season of SSIS athletics this school year, the elementary basketball teams have enjoyed getting back on the court every Monday and Wednesday. However, all great seasons must come to an end. I’m sure that the youngsters have learned a lot of valuable lessons from their amazing coaches.
Fun, fun, fun in the sun! MS soccer season has started! Our middle school players were eager to get out and play some soccer out on our fields for the past few weeks. Just like their players, the coaches were excited for the season ahead, and some of the coaches were willing to give a few remarks about their times playing and about the current season.
This year’s SSIS swim team started off on August 17 with the first practice of the year. With a swimmer count of over 40, combined with middle and high school students it greatly exceeds the number of swimmers the team had last year. Over the course of the four-month long season, the SSIS swim team will be competing against schools all over the city, ranging from friendly meets, to competitive invitationals.
