The Timberwolves celebrated Season 2 success at the Upper School Athletic Awards last week.  The teams and sports acknowledged included Golf, Tennis, Basketball, Touch Rugby, Ball Hockey, Rugby and Cross Country.  It was also nice to have the opportunity to present the SEASAC Sportsmanship trophies to Tennis, Basketball and Cross Country.

Season 2 Sports Awards

Touch Rugby

report Presented by Rachel C

Report: The Girls Touch Rugby programme continued the awesome development over the last 4 years.  Because of committed players and great coaches each year this team has had best ever results.  This year we travelled to Singapore and made the semifinals in a pre SEASAC tournament and then we hosted Div 1 and 2 SEASAC Touch. It was our first time experiencing Div 1 in CDNIS History, finishing 5th overall, which is a result to be proud of. We should also be proud of the growing Girls touch rugby programme that saw 25 girls try out last week for our U14 teams. The future of TWolves Touch Rugby is strong.

Golf

The golf season runs from Season 1 to Season 2.  In Season 1 we have the CDNIS golf club that encourages all that love the game to join the team and practice/play. In Season 2 we choose our best 8 golfers to represent CDNIS at SEASAC.  This was held in Bangkok and our best round came in the Girls competition was Anika who shot  87 on Day 1.  Andre left his best until the last round scoring a 75, the equal second best round of the day. We also had a good range of golfers representing CDNIS at the ISSFHK Champs in early January. The best round came from ….. Mr Wah, who also counting his own shots.

Boys (presented by Willis)

Report:  It is safe to say that Boys Basketball programme had their best year yet.  For the first time we had 5 Boys Basketball teams, with the growth of the sport evident in 2 x U14 teams.  For the first time we had a preseason programme that was well attended. For the first time we had morning practices with 6.30am starts building team spirit as much as team fitness. For the first time ever the Boys won our home invitational tournament to be TWolves champions for 2017. For the first time ever a Boys team won the ISSFHK Championship (B14) and our Boys B20 team finished with Bronze in ISSFHK which is our best result for at least 5 years. Our Div 3 Boys team also made the playoffs and finished with Silver. In SEASAC our Boys team played hard and fair to win SEASAC Sportsmanship and Mark K dominated the 3 point competition to win that too.  We made SEASAC semis and we hope to continue the growth of this programme next year. Boys Basketball had a year to remember.
Girls (presented by Kristle)

The highlight of the Girls Basketball season was a quadruple (yes that’s correct quadruple) overtime win in the Under 14 Girls playoff.  The CDNIS Under 14 showed amazing grit, determination and courage to come through the game to take Bronze for ISSFHK.  This is a great result for the future of our programme.  The G20 team also made the ISSFHK playoffs and fought hard for 4th in ISSFHK and 6th in SEASAC and runners up in the Timberwolves Invitational. Congratulations to the 50+ TWolves Basketball girls this year.

Ball Hockey

report presented by Justin L

Ball Hockey continued their fantastic record of making the ISSFHK playoffs 4 years in a row. We had great numbers of players this year and we should also be proud that we have a number of girls – tough girls – playing in this mixed league. This year we finished with Silver in the ISSFHK Ball Hockey league just going down to our Canadian nemesis in Ball Hockey Delia School.

Tennis

report presented by Matt Chan

Another fantastic season for tennis where we equalled our best result making the SEASAC finals and finishing with Silver in Div 1.  Seed awards went to myself and Andrew Lin and we were proud to win the Sportsmanship award. It could have been even better but our #2 seed Stephen Wong was selected to represent HK in Junior Davis Cup and was unable to make it to SEASAC. Our girl’s team travelled to Myanmar for SEASAC and finished 4th.  Our girl’s team have an average age of 13 so this team will be a force in coming years.  Both teams returned late Sunday night and then played again on the Monday/Tuesday after in the ISSFHK finals.  Here the Girls finished with Bronze and the Boys continued their dominance of ISSFHK winning Gold in Div 1 and Gold in Div 2 too.  Can both these Boys teams come to the stage to receive their banner.

Rugby

presented by Gus

Our Boys Rugby programme is a great chance for players from many different clubs to combine wearing the TWolves uniform and represent our school.  This year we had a U12, U14, U16 and U20 team.  It was great to host SEASAC rugby a couple of weeks ago and our SEASAC Boys finished runners-up in the Bowl Final.  We did enjoy good wins over 3 schools.  Our B16 team finished 3rd in the HKSSF B Grade tournament and our Boys U14 team had their strongest season in both 7s and 10 aside. With greater commitment to trainings, our Boys teams will continue to develop and enjoy success.

Cross Country

report presented by TMo.

CDNIS has a great cross country programme featuring up to 70 athletes and 10 coaches.  These committed athletes train 2-3 times a week at school and often outside of school too. The depth of our programme allowed us to send 2 Boys teams and a strong girls team to SEASAC Cross Country in Singapore.  Here the teams braved the crippling heat to compete with pride and win the SEASAC Sportsmanship trophy. We returned to the relative cool of Hong Kong to send a team of 40 to the ISSFHK champs at Pui O.  Our best individual results came from Max T with Gold and Charlie S with Silver and Harmony P with Bronze.  Our determined G20 team also picked up team Bronze as a result of a gutsy team effort.  The best part of CDNIS Cross Country is that it includes students from age 10-18 and there is a real team spirit involved in practices and competition. Congratulations to all those that took part.

SEASAC Sportsmanship

We should all be super proud of the SEASAC teams performances.  It is truly amazing that in 10 SEASAC events this year (Season 1 and Season 2), CDNIS has received the one Sportsmanship Trophy per tournament, 6 times! That shows that our athletes represent the spirit of SEASAC and have earned the respect of all they play against.  CDNIS are also highly regarded as SEASAC hosts, which is something we can all be proud of. On top of that, we had fantastic results in Division One Boys Tennis (Silver), Boys Basketball (4th), and Girls Touch Rugby 5th.
