SGIS Basketball Tournament 2014

Monday, 24. November 2014

This weekend the Ecole boys' basketball team travelled to Leysin for the annual SGIS tournament. After a long train ride from the Hasliberg the team competed against other international schools from all over Switzerland. The boys had a tough start with three close losses on the first day of play. However, they showed a lot of determination, held their fighting spirit and were competitive in each game, losing two of the games by less than 3 points. On the second day of play, the team came out much stronger and won all of their games, finishing on a high note with a 15 point margin of victory in the last game. Alex Li, co-captain, said "We really noticed that we improved over the course of the tournament. It was clear to us that as we got used to playing against other teams, our game really picked up".

Overall, the tournament was a great experience and the boys look forward to building on their success as they head to more tournaments in early Spring.
