wab-softball-photo-shoot-8Western Academy of Beijing (WAB) sent teams to participate in five different Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC) tournaments in mid-April. The chance to interact with and compete against athletes from schools around Asia allowed WAB students to engage with other cultures and learn about dedication to their teammates.

The APAC experiences brought successes and learning experiences for all of the athletes.

Of the WAB teams participating, two came back to Beijing with championship trophies. The boys’ soccer team went to Kobe, Japan, and outscored their opponents 26-1, adding to the team’s legacy by earning its fourth straight APAC title. The boys’ badminton team also earned a victory, taking home first place in a highly competitive tournament. The girls’ badminton squad put in a great effort, and came out of the competition with a third place trophy.

WAB softball had a milestone performance in Hong Kong after a breakout season. The team progressed to the final and won second place, bringing home the program’s first-ever APAC trophy.

The girls’ soccer program hosted an exciting tournament under beautifully blue Beijing skies, as students, staff and fans of the Tigers came out to Tiger Field on all three days of the competition to offer support. The track and field team gave a big performance despite having a small roster, and had several encouraging performances throughout the tournament.

 

Congratulations to all of the APAC teams who represented WAB proudly and well on the big stage.
