Football Girls: Gold for GESS! Our 12U team managed the impossible and defended last year’s title in the highest ACSIS league. Three amazing wins over Stamford, Tanglin Trust and Australian School clinched it last week. With a small and very young squad (five players even supporting from Junior School Campus), the odds were surely against Team GESS this year. Yet, the girls proved the skeptics wrong and won the league in outstanding fashion. According to Coach Guy, this is thanks to a remarkable team spirit and a positive attitude throughout the season. Massive congratulations to our young football girls - once again the best team in Singapore!
Football Boys: Wow, what a season finale that was last Monday! Our 12U boys faced Nexus for the decisive match-up, with both teams on straight wins up to this point. A fascinating, fast-paced football game developed in which both teams missed multiple opportunities to seal the deal. Eventually, the teams drew 0:0, so that the final standings of the league now depend on the outcome of some late fixtures. In any case, congratulations to our GESS boys on a (nearly) perfect season in ACSIS Division 2!
Basketball: Both 14U teams had great season performances, missing out on the medals by only a whisker. The girls had a fantastic last game in which they managed to overcome a strong team from the International Community School by 36:26 points. 4th place in their divisions for both teams, respectively.
Track & Field: On Saturday, 12 May, the Middle School ACSIS Championships took place at Singapore American School. It was a massive, well-organized meet with hundreds of students from international schools all over Singapore competing in running, jumping and throwing events. Nine highly dedicated GESS athletes took part as well and represented our school in great style. For the first time in many years, we even had a 14U girls’ 100m relay in the starting blocks. Great job, boys and girls!
