Winter season ends with the successful ISST basketball tournaments

The ACS Athens Varsity Boys & Girls Basketball teams participated in the ISST Tournaments that took place in London and Bonn respectively on March 7-10. Both teams presented our school with pride and came back with great memories!

Our boys' team won the 2018 ISST Championship and set the bar high for the upcoming years! Our team was undefeated and showed its talent and sportsmanship by winning the final game against ASL 68-53!

Our girls' team was very competitive and fought hard as it won 4 out of 5 games. The team ended up 9th.

Great performance by all the players; from the ACS Athens boys' team Stefano Spassof, Jason Papadopoulos and Petros Papadimitrakopoulos were chosen on the all star team. Jason Papadopoulos received the prestigious Scott Baillie award*. From our girls' team Joana Meco was selected in the all star team.

* The Scott Baillie Award, honoring the memory of Scott Baillie, a deceased student/athlete from the American School in London, will be awarded to the male basketball player in the Division I championships who best demon- strates those personal qualities held by the late Scott Baillie. The Scott Baillie Award will be a permanent trophy supplied by the American School in London. Engraving of the recipient's name is the responsibility of the winning school.

The words of John Wooden best describe this award:
"The player who gives his best is sure of success, while the player who gives less than his best is a failure."

Congratulations to all players and coaches for their tremendous effort!

End of Swimming Season with great performance at the ACS Athens International Swimming Cup

What a way to end a long swimming season!! The ACS Athens Middle School and High School swimming teams competed in the International Swimming cup that included eleven other schools from abroad and the Attica area. Close to 200 swimmers from Kuwait, Morocco, Austria, Riyadh, Tunis, Egypt and of course Athens, competed in a series of swimming event over two days! All of our swimmers had personal "bests" with a number of them making it to the finals of their events: 37 appearances in 48 total finals! A very good accomplishment indeed.

CONGRATULATIONS to the ACS Athens Middle School team for their second place finish and the High school Swimming team for finishing in fourth place. Both teams had a combined score that placed them second overall behind the winning team of Costeas Geitonas. Our teams finished their season with 2 gold, 8 silver and 9 bronze medals in this competition with a number of broken school records!

Great job swimmers and coaches!
