St Andrews Green Valley hosted 3 schools from across South East Asia last weekend for the Under 15 Invitational Games. Our Under 15 athletes were up for the challenge and took home a huge haul of trophies from the competition. In the boys U15 football competition St Andrews won all of their games and ended up with 9 points overall and Uplands from Penang were a close second with 6 points. The girls football team were also on top form and won all of their games, taking home the gold! We are extremely proud of the level of skill and determination of our players, and the sportsmanship displayed by all competing teams on the field.
The basketball games were full of excitement and speed with supporters and players enjoying the exciting games. In the basketball competition both the girls and boys teams from St Andrews came second with Uplands taking home the championship trophies.
To round up the two day tournament the students had some friendly games against each other in volleyball and polo. There were plenty of smiles in the volleyball competition with each team winning a game in the ‘A' league. The Uplands team won the ‘B' league. In the water polo it was the first time the St Andrews' Panthers had competed in the sport and they did themselves proud. Uplands won the overall polo competition, but it was more about participating and having fun to celebrate the end of the tournament. Many students said how much they enjoyed this new sport, so no doubt we will see some more competitions in the future.
Thank you to all of the teams who attended the event: Uplands, GIS and ISE and a special thank you to all the parental support which helped to create a great atmosphere for the competing students.
