The start of the basketball season this week was a huge success and the atmosphere in the Silverbacks Den was fantastic. The Varsity and JV Teams played rivals BSN at home and ISH won 3 out of the 4 games. With only one week of training together the Silverbacks dominated. Well done to all coaches and players. Also, a huge THANK YOU to all those who came out to support the teams and to our PA Silverbacks Team for keeping everyone going with the concession stand.
Results: vs BSN
- Varsity Boys 48 -42
- Varsity Girls 25-21
- JV Boys 36-17
- JV Girls 29-35
The Rugby Varsity Team have been continuing with their training out in the cold and wet weather. The first game for the team will be after the New Year. Keep up the good work guys!
This weekend sees the Varsity and JV Basketball Teams travel to Brussels to compete in a mini Christmas tournament against St Johns (STJ) and American School Paris (ASP). Good luck to all teams.
The ISH-Club teams have been performing well this first half of the season. Last week the ISH/HDS MC7 Hockey Team beat Pullox MC5 7-2. Both MC7 and MB5 Teams have performed very well this season and are looking forward to the second half of the season as the Hockey moves indoors for the winter. The HDS/Jumpers Basketball Team also won their game against Cobra last week. They are currently undefeated this season and look forward to playing up a division in the new year. Both ISH-Club teams are in action this weekend. ISH/HDS Teams plays on Saturday and the ISH/Jumpers Team play on Sunday.
Next week - the U12 and U14 Basketball teams open their season with a mini-tournament against ASH and ISD (Dusseldorf) at ISH. We hope to see you at the games supporting your Silverbacks.
Remember to follow all of the news and action on Instagram @ISH Silverbacks and Twitter @ISHSPORTS.
Have a great weekend. Wrap up warm as the winter is finally here!
