Fall ISSTs recap: day two

Cross country:

Cross country finished ISSTs winning silver, as the first and only team to finish their season. The tournament concluded with one race for each group of JV girls, JV boys, varsity girls and varsity boys.

Varsity boys, varsity girls and JV girls all finished in third place of their groups. Maddie Whitman (‘22) led the varsity girls squad by placing sixth. Aidan Norris (’19) earned an individual medal for the second consecutive year finishing in second place. A team effort propelled the JV girls to third place, as Helena Hansen (’22) grabbed the 10th place. JV boys finished sixth in their group.

By combining the results of each group and calculating the cumulative lowest score the team placed second overall.

 

Varsity girls volleyball:

Varsity girls volleyball lost their first two games today 2-0 against the American School of the Hague, ACS Cobham before securing a win against Zurich International School in three sets.

Team captain Marianne De Ridder (’18) believes that the team improved their performance on the second day of this year’s tournament. “We played so much better today,” she said. “We have a pretty new team so everyone was getting their nerves out and we came to play today.”

The team will take on the American School of The Hague in the bronze medal game at 10 a.m. The live stream can be found here

 

Varsity boys volleyball:

After two days of round-robin play and a 6-1 record, varsity boys volleyball enter tomorrow’s final as the top seed.

Captain Alex Ferragamo (’18) asserts the team started the day “pretty poorly” losing in a three-set thriller to the American School in Paris, “who we should have beaten.” However, the team rebounded with two “decisive wins” beating tournament hosts ACS Athens 2-0 and finishing TASIS in three sets.

The team will end their tournament as they did their day, facing a familiar rival in TASIS. “Going into tomorrow’s match we have to play error-free ball. We need to get our serves in and block hard,” Ferragamo said.

The final is at 11 a.m. tomorrow and can be seen via this link.

 

Varsity girls soccer:

Varsity girls soccer progress to tomorrow’s final after avenging last year’s loss in the final. They reversed the score and won against TASIS 1-0.

Since losing their first game of the tournament to ACS Cobham, the team have yet to concede a goal. They won against Frankfurt International School 2-0 earlier in the day.

They play Cobham in tomorrow’s final at 10:30 a.m. There is no link to watch the game.

 

Varsity field hockey:

For the second consecutive year, varsity field hockey finish in last place. They lost against the British School in the Netherlands 5-0 and International School of Brussels 6-0. The team end the tournament without scoring a goal.

 

Varsity boys soccer:

With only a game left to play, varsity boys soccer remain undefeated on the season.

After two early goals against ACS Hillingdon the team conceded their only goal of the tournament. Three unanswered goals eased any questions over the final result. Chris von Daehne feels composure was critical to today’s performances. “In our first match, which had the potential to become quite nervy, we were able to kill the game off and utilise our full squad,” he said.

Later, they beat hosts Frankfurt International School (FIS) 2-0 in the semi-finals, which “was much more of a battle and really came down to us wanting it more and grinding it out when we had to,” von Daehne said.

Tomorrow they play Munich International School in the final at 11:00 a.m., which can be viewed through the following link.
