Penguin Invitational Basketball Tournament

It was the fifth tournament for ISM Lions team playing away at the Penguins sports centre.

This year is already the fifteenth year of ASS inviting local and international schools in Moscow to their Basketball tournament. 

ISM Girls were the stars of the show, winning 4 out 5 of their games. They only lost one game to the DOD school by a single point. The girls did not qualify for the final based on goal average (baskets scored/baskets conceded - the lost out by 0.01 of an average). Although the girls were really disappointed, they picked themselves up and managed to take home the 3rd place trophy. We are all very proud of how well the girls represented ISM and they are a true credit to our school.

Our ISM Boys squad had never played in such a tournament before, but they steadily learnt how to handle playing Basketball at such a high pace and standard. They progressed as the tournament went on, unfortunately losing all 4 of their games but in the process managed their best performance in their final match-up against DSM. The boys were a joy to have there and represented ISM brilliantly.

We are hosting our very own Middle School Basketball tournament in February and we very much hope that we can attract a high level of support for our ISM Lions teams at this tournament.
