HS Basketball CEESA

Varsity Girls and Boys Basketball Teams, as well as the JV Girls Basketball Team attended the CEESA tournaments last week. Varsity Boys positioned 6th in Warsaw, and Varsity Girls positioned 5th in Istanbul.

Meanwhile, the JV Girls competed with Budapest, Bucharest,  Prague, Warsaw, and Moscow here in Kyiv. At the end of the day, they proudly earned the 1st-place trophy.

The JV girls won 5 out of 6 games over the course of the 2-day competition. On the first day, they beat Moscow, Prague, and Bucharest. On the second day, they beat Warsaw and lost to Budapest. However, during the Budapest game, both of the teams  were leaning back and saving their energy since they knew that they would face each other again in 3 hours for the final battle.

The championship game ended with the score 33 to 24 in the Lady Kozak's favor. KIS dominated the game, falling behind only for a short period of time. The final quarter made the win especially clear as Stacy brought KIS into the lead with her continuous successful shots. 

These games concluded the 2012-2013 Basketball Season at KIS. The Spring sports are now starting, and students are preparing themselves for new challenges.
