Annelise is a grade ten student who plays basketball for KIS. Here she offers a season update. Be sure to support the teams at their January home game!
Basketball tryouts were for two days, starting on October 30th and ending the next day October 31st. The first day of tryouts for both girls and boys were extremely tiring, as many students were either cut or they gave up. The first varsity friendly game was on November 14th against YISS at YISS. Official games, both Varsity and Junior Varsity, started on November 21st against GSIS as a home game.
Although the girls lost both friendly games against YISS and SFS, the girls bounced back with a 47-16 win against GSIS. On the other hand, the boys won both friendly games and beat GSIS 75-27. Despite losing many seniors on both the boys and girls teams, they started the season off well and are trying hard to keep up this effort. After games at GSIS, girls and boys both won both of their two games against APIS and DSS. Their next away game is at SIS, and they are conditioning hard to beat them. The next home game for both varsity and junior varsity, is on January 16th against Chadwick so please come and support!
