Concordia ACAMIS basketball The Concordia girls’ basketball team brought home their fifth straight ACAMIS basketball championship and this year’s Team Sportsmanship award at the season-ending 2008 ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) tournament, hosted at Shanghai American School (SAS) Pudong campus from January 24 to 26.

  The girls’ team, coached by Ms. Cathy Sue Smith, beat Western Academy of Beijing 40-16 in the finals, which Concordia controlled from the opening tip. The team ended their successful season with a record of 26-2, winning ACAMIS, SISAC (Shanghai International School Athletic Conference) and International School Beijing’s Great Wall tournaments.

  The girls weren’t the only ones playing to win at the ACAMIS tournament. Concordia’s boys’ basketball team got a second place finish in this very competitive tournament.

  Coached by Mr. Miguel Carreon and Mr. Nels Sloth, the Concordia boys fell behind AISG (American International School of Guangzhou) early in the game. They worked hard to close the gap but could never get the lead in the game. Guangzhou won 36-32. Thus, they ended their season with a 17-10 record, a SISAC Championship and the ACAMIS Runner-Up title. This was the fourth time in five years that CISS and AISG boys played for the ACAMIS title.

  Named as All-Tournament Players were seniors Lauryn Kelly (fifth ACAMIS Basketball All Tournament Team, Grade 8 through 12) and Tyler Gurd (second ACAMIS Basketball All Tournament Team, Grade 11 and 12); junior Richard Lee (first-time ACAMIS selection); sophomore Kirsten Nehls (her second ACAMIS Basketball All Tournament Team, Grade 9 and 10); and freshman Stacia Allen (first-time ACAMIS selection).
