BSK leads ISACK Cham­pi­onships

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Bri­tish School of Kuwait (BSK) and their fan­tas­tic stu­dent ath­letes have dom­i­nated sea­son 1 of the ISACK cham­pi­onships. All 6 squads made the semi­fi­nals, with four making the fi­nal. Af­ter some thrilling fi­nals, BSK took gold in three of the four fi­nals making them the most suc­cess­ful school in Kuwait in the open­ing sea­son.

In the boys’ foot­ball, the BSK Un­der13 side took the ti­tle for the first time in 5 years, beat­ing The English Acad­emy 4-2 on penal­ties. It had been a tightly con­tested bat­tle, but Cap­tain Ha­mad Alad­wani and coaches Michael Craw­shaw and Hannah Glendin­ning will be de­lighted with the way the group con­ducted them­selves to take gold.

The BSK Open Age side had also been with­out the ti­tle for 5 years, but went through the sea­son un­de­feated be­fore beat­ing Kuwait English School 1-0 in a highly en­ter­tain­ing fi­nal. Long serv­ing player and Cap­tain Ge­orge Ibrahim and coach Calum Ersk­ine could not have been hap­pier to see this young team con­tinue to im­press as they move through the ISACK age cat­e­gories.

In the girls’ net­ball, the BSK Un­der15 team lost nar­rowly in the fi­nal af­ter a fan­tas­tic start to the sea­son. How­ever, it was the BSK Open Age net­ball side who took gold, putting in an im­pres­sive fi­nal 5 min­utes to shift the mo­men­tum of the game and beat New English School 26-24 to re­tain their ti­tle. Cap­tain Meral Al-Shair and coach Stephanie Jones can be in­cred­i­bly proud of this all con­quer­ing side.

The Life Sci­ences Acad­emy (LSA) spon­sored a blood do­na­tion cam­paign that was car­ried out re­cently in co­or­di­na­tion with the ‘Pharaoh Bik­ers’ club.
