I t is hard to believe we are half-way finished in the 2016-17 SAIKAC sports season. I want to thank our coaches from this half - Jeff Lynn for table tennis, Courtney Berry for boys volleyball, Christina Kottman for boys soccer, and Yulisa Cruz for girls soccer.
or table tennis some highlights were fielding our
first girls table tennis team, Jiss/Hamza Yate
winning Open doubles, Dharun S coming 2nd in Open
Singles, and Shivam winning the U14 singles.
or volleyball we fielded our first boys and girls U19
teams and both teams were able to win matches in
each tournament. We proudly hosted the boys U14
SAIKAC tournament, and our girls U14 team won their
SAIKAC tournament championship.
or soccer we fielded our second boys U19 SAIKAC
tournament team, and were able to win a match
and stay competitive in the others. For U16 SAIKAC
team our boys won all of their matches and were the
number one seed going into the second day of
competition. Though they didn't have the same success
on day two, they fought hard even though they were
missing a couple of key players. Our U16 girls SAIKAC
team gave a consistently strong effort and came away
with the plate championship.
ome of our second semester sports are already
underway - boys basketball is practicing for a
tournament in Bahrain at the end of January, and the
girls netball squad is preparing for their tournament at
the beginning of Feb. We'll get going with U14 boys and
girls soccer after the winter break, as well as the girls
U16/U19 basketball team. Their SAIKAC tournaments
are in March (we will be hosting the U16 girls
tournament here in Jubail). Furthermore, we hope to
field a large Cross Country contingent for the annual
meet at RT in Feb.
hanks again for your continued support of our
In the meantime, have a great winter
break no matter where you may be!
