ycis-bj-isac-championsOn 11 January, the Year 10-13 Yew Chung International School of Beijing Boys (YCIS Beijing) Basketball team fought to victory in the final games of the International School Athletic Conference (ISAC) Basketball competition. Seeded number one after a very strong regular season, the team faced fierce competition from the other top five international school basketball teams located in Beijing. After defeating Beijing World Youth Academy in the semi-final, the boys were able to put in another great team performance to clinch victory in the final, overcoming Western Academy of Beijing 61-42 and adding yet another sports trophy to the huge collection that has accumulated over the years at the school.

However, not only did they achieve 1st place for their basketball skills, the team were also selected by the other international school coaches and players to win the sportsmanship award for their attitude throughout the tournament, a character trait that is always at the forefront of sports at YCIS Beijing. It is a tradition at the end of each game for the YCIS Beijing players to huddle before chanting a sentence of praise for the opposition. This combined with helping others, supporting teammates and never arguing with the referee were just some of the fine displays of attitude and behaviour that earned the team a second trophy in one day.
