On Saturday 20th May, the U13 touch team competed in the ISAC Touch tournament, which was held at ISKL. The captains were Brionny and Niki in Year 8. The team made a massive improvement throughout the day, learning from our mistakes after each game. After KLASS played each team, we were placed 3rd, which meant we were through to the 3rd vs 4th playoffs. Unfortunately, the other team, ISKL Grade 6, beat us in the playoffs, although only by one try. This placed us 4th overall. The match was incredibly close, and we gave it our all, from the first tap, to the final whistle.
This tournament has been a great experience for our team, as we feel we have improved tremendously and generally gained more confidence playing touch. The entire team had a great deal of fun, and ended the day with huge smiles on our faces.

This year has been a fantastic year for touch! The girls started of the season with lots of determination to hold their title at U15 ISAC touch.
The day started off with a fantastic game against ISKL, where we lost narrowly 1-0, the game that followed was against GIS, our rivals. We had a brilliant game with lots of tries, with the final score being 4-0. Our 4th game of the day was against Sunway where we had another great game with tries scored from many team members. Our final pool game was against the Australian school, which if we had won, would mean a placing in the final. It was a very tough game with immense heat and sunshine, but we powered through and won 5-0, with our best performance of the year! Bringing us straight into the final.
In the final we were again faced with ISKL, the heat started to get to us and we let our heads slip down, after they scored 2 tries. We were able to snatch one try but it was not enough to win. An unfortunate loss. But a fantastic tournament and 2nd place overall.
Our first proper tournament with our new team was a great experience! Well done all!
