BSK leads ISACK Championships
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.
