SUPER SEASAC!

By | Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Rugby, Tennis, Touch Rugby | No Comments

Super SEASAC has been an incredible experience for all 55 of our TWolves athletes and our 12 Coaches.

Having 4 sports, 600+ likeminded SEASAC athletes, all in the same place competing at the highest level has been awesome. The SEASAC Gala dinner tonight is going to be a special memory.
It almost makes our superb results today secondary in importance ….. almost!
We are SEASAC Touch Girls Div 2 CHAMPIONS!  This is an incredible performance and a massive achievement.  There were so many people here, delighted for our girls and amazed at our development over the last 3 years.  Huge credit to Kirk and Liam for growing this great group of girls into such an impressive unit.  6 games 6 wins, including an amazing Championship game against home town BPS with their big crowd and home conditions + 30+ degrees.
Our Boys Basketball have put in a most improved performance and made the semi finals of SEASAC Div 1 which is already one better than last year. Tomorrow morning they have the chance to be just the 3rd CDNIS Boys Basketball team to bring home a SEASAC Medal when they play for Bronze. We play past champions UWC Dover, but we have a good chance of pulling off an upset.
Our Girls Basketball just missed out on third after an early win and a late loss today.  We now must rise again tomorrowmorning when we face NIST in the play off for 5th/6th. A win and we stay in Div 1, a loss and we head to Div 2.  We are confident and committed.
Our Boys Rugby had their best ever SEASAC Rugby with a big win in the 7th/8th playoff Final.  To come from not being able to field a team last year to being competitive with all but the Singapore schools, is a great achievement and a good place to build a programme from.
Our Boys Tennis team were within touching distance of a SEASAC Championship, or at least a final, but a few tie breakers and a severe case of Heat stroke for our #1 player (a visit to hospital by ambulance, but all recovered now) means we will play for Bronze tomorrow at 10am. Our boys are right on the cusp of a first championship but we will have to wait one more year with our talented team of young players.
Thats all from Bangkok Super SEASAC, good luck also to our SEASAC Girls Tennis team in Singapore who will play for bronze in the thunder effected Singapore SEASAC.
I am most proud that our Athletes have represented our school to the highest standard on and off the field.  They are an absolute pleasure to take away and a credit to our school.  The same could definitely be said for the group of 13 of the best coaches you will ever find who are giving up this weekend to support the team, and they are loving it.
Final update to come, we will be home just before midnight on Sunday!

Fantastic Weekend of Sport!

We had a fantastic weekend of sport.

SEASAC Cross Country 
We were super hosts and both day 1 at Aberdeen (photos) and Day 2 at Pui O (photos below) went perfectly. Thanks to our Athletics Council for leading the volunteers.
Congratulations to our Girls team who finished 3rd and the the Boys team who finished 4th.  Fantastic individual performances from Tomoka (8th) and Devlin (11th).

SDRC Touch Rugby
After three days of great games our Boys finished 4th and our Girls finished 3rd. Great results.   Thanks to Coaches West, Ching, Villemeur and Schmalenberg for leading the weekend away in China.
The standard of Touch played by the CDNIS Boys during Day 1 and Day 2 was high and promising.  With 4 wins and 1 Loss, the first 2 days’ performance generated a strong hope.  Kids did so well and people watching were so impressed!  On day 3 we lost our momentum and lost in the Semi-final.  However, our boys picked it up in the game and fought hard for 3rd place.  Unfortunately, Shenzhen scored the decision touchdown during extra time but our coaches have never been more proud of the boys who defended with such a big heart and was fully committed all the way!
Well done to the all star players of the tournament – Annie Sweeney, Micaela Forcione, Lance Kou, Tomas Choukroun.

Day 1 Report

CDNIS are doing us proud at SEASAC! It hot and tough conditions our Touch, Tennis and Basketball teams are relying on a healthy mix of courage and skill to make super progress on Day 1.

Our Touch Girls are in Semi final contention with 2 great victories today and 1 loss. This sets them up for a playoff game tomorrow afternoon. Lots of sprained ankles, but even more heart shown by the girls, and a few Heart Attacks to Coaches Kahu and O’Tool from the refs!

Our Tennis Boys are leading the comp with a perfect 3 from 3 today in blistering conditions at BPS. Alan (#1) and Alistair (#2) are undefeated in 3 matches and the doubles two came through in the clutch to keep our perfect record in a tight match with NIST.

Our Basketballers recovered from a shaky start to both be still in contention for a top 4 finish after 2 wins from the girls this afternoon to finish 2/4 and a great win from the boys who are 1/3. The games in the morning will be crucial, if we are to maintain our great standing in Div 1.

Most importantly our TWolves Teams are playing the games at the highest level in true SEASAC spirit and are outstanding ambassadors for our school.

Go TWolves.

An update on Girls Tennis will be added as Mr Schmalenberg reports in.

Day 2 Report

SEASAC Day 2 was everything that is great about sport and everything that allows sport to reveal character.

A rain delay to Day 2 at the tennis caused havoc with the schedule of play, but our super cool tennis boys, with rackets in hand, took it all in their stride to continue their great run through pool play to qualify in the top position for the semis tomorrow morning ….. at 7am! To bring home the bacon (aka SEASAC Gold Banner) they will need to beat home school BPS in the semi and then either UWC or NIST in the final, all before catching their plane home at 4pm.  Thanks to the Annual Fund who have made arrangements for an extra seat on the flight for the trophy just in case this dream becomes a reality.

Our Girls Touch Team qualified 3rd and played a semi against home team RIS that had so much drama, excitement and a little disappointment.  But the overriding feeling of pride is the memory Ill take away from the game, for sure.  RIS (A team we lost 1-4 to just yesterday) were relentless on attack for the first half and it was only grit and determination that got us through to half time at 0-0.  Then a Danielle Klappstein special opened the scoring for CDNIS early in the second half. We let in a RIS try to tie it up but hung on to force it to extra time.  This is where a player is dropped off every two minutes and the first try wins.  We got down from 6 aside to 3 v 3 and just opened up in the last play.  The girls disappointment showed how much they cared about this game, but their sportsmanship and class was very obvious in this tough defeat.  They will quickly bounce back tomorrow and will play for Bronze,Sunday at 9am …. and I have a sneaky suspicion they will be on fire!

Our Boys Basketball team have over achieved at this tournament and their development is testament to great coaches and leading senior players.  After being all tied up with a couple of minutes to go they just lost 43-48 to MKIS and this meant narrowly missing out on the playoffs.  They bounced back to smash GIS in their final pool game and can be very proud of finishing 5th and securing Div 1 status for 2016. Thanks boys for continuing the CDNIS legacy at SEASAC Basketball.

Our Girls Basketball team fronted up again today after 4 massive matches on Friday.  They secured the “Balo Cup” by beating Patana convincingly and were able to measure themselves against the outstanding UWC team who are in a different league to all teams here.  The coaches must be proud of finishing 3rd equal on points with a 3 win 3 loss record, which is an amazing achievement in itself. Under SEASAC rules we just miss out on the 3/4 playoff, …. on count back …by one basket!  This caused a few tears, but the character of the squad showed through when, knowing their fate was already sealed,  they pounced on the strong Patana team and came away with with an awesome 37-32 win.  Well done girls, you too have secured our SEASAC future in Div 1.

SEASAC Girls tennis report to come when Mr Schmalenberg remembers his login details for GMail in Myanmar!

Good luck Sunday at 9am to our Touch Rugby Girls who will be going for Bronze.

Good luck Sunday to our Tennis Boys who are aiming for GOLD.

Final Summary

The CDNIS community can be proud of all their SEASAC Teams who represented the school in Tennis, Touch Rugby and Basketball Jan 29-Feb1.

For some teams it was a weekend of “almosts”, for some it was “goals achieved” and for all it gave a clear picture of what we need to do to set and strive for new goals next year.

To our Senior students who have enjoyed their final SEASAC, thank you for your contribution to our programmes.

To all of our Coaches – you are fantastic role models and you make the Timberwolves a special team to be part of.

Thanks Coaches Stroupe, Kahu, O’Toole, Hautz, Coates, Stone, Wright, Schmalenberg and Safaya.

The results below don’t do the player’s effort justice, nor do they reflect how well our teams really performed, but here they are anyway.

Girls Tennis 2nd Place

Boys Tennis 4th Place

Girls Touch Rugby 4th Place

Boys Basketball 5th Place

Girls Basketball 5th Place

There are 13 schools that compete in SEASAC, so we should be very proud of these results, and more importantly celebrate the way they were achieved.

Well done TWolves.
