BISJ Girls Team played at AISJ with their Coach Joshua Beggs - BISJ Boys Team played at BISJ with their Coaches Jackson Pearce and Kosta Tsiligkeridis
BISJ Girls - Overall the girls finished 5th. Tala was our strongest server and most consistent passer, and she showed good leadership on the court. Rasha had some good blocks and was very strong at the net. Finn and Jude did a great job in the setter position. Maddy was quick on the court and had some good hits. Leya and Mira both made some great plays and proved that they deserved to be starters.
The girls improved a lot this season, learning a new offense and developing the skills and discipline to employ bump-set-spike. They are a young team and will come back much stronger next year.
BISJ boys - Had two teams – there was a lot of support from students, staff and parents which was great to see. Overall Boys A team came 2nd and Boys B team 6th. There were 7 teams playing over 2 days with over 60 games of Volleyball.

U16 Boys Volleyball - Hosted by AISJ
U16 Boys Volleyball from BISJ participated in the RSAC meet at AISJ last Friday. There were two teams both played very well and were top contenders in the tournament. Aly Fetouh (Y11) captained his team through the tournament with no losses and were thrilled to beat KAUST in a exciting third set. Laith Lolas (Y11) captained the other BISJ team and unlike Aly's team, they came up against Yanbu, who were tactically clever and ended up beating BISJ.
Aly Fetouh and Saif Sabban scored a number of points by placing the ball deep into the opponents half, Laith Lolas quickness and commitment saw him diving and sprinting for wayward spikes or mis-hits, Mohamad AlKaff and Skander Ghorbal were very reliable at the net while Suhayl Uthman did a great job of communicating on court. All players improved over the day and are keen to face their rivals (particularly Yanbu and KAUST) at the SAIKAC tournament at BISJ soon. Hopefully we will have lots of spectators cheering our boys on. - Coach - Naomi Rangi
