DOUBLE DELIGHT! CIBSA Benchball & Basketball - 19 April at BISC

Thu, 25/04/2013 - 16:13 -- Lydia Makram

For the first time ever British School Alexandria achieved 1st position in two CIBSA festivals on the same day. 

Year 3 and 4 Benchball

The year 3 and 4 Benchball squad dominated all their matches ultimately winning the final by 11 points to 1.  A combination of their: fitness, passing, movement into space, work ethic and spirit made them a very powerful unit.  They were pushed hard by the other school teams but were never overwhelmed.  They were very positive on court and ultimately achieved the result they deserved.  Well done!

Year 5 and 6 Basketball

The British School Basketball squad again worked with great skill and commitment.  They worked well for each other, defending and attacking as a unit.  The final was a very close match, but with their overall fitness and tenacity the British School Alexandria managed to get the winning basket with seconds to spare, eventually winning by 7 points to 5.

Well done to both teams, many thanks to the exceptional support from the parents present.   A day the children will remember for a long time.
