ycis-isac-badminton-championOn 15 March, Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing) Primary students took part in the International Schools Alliance China (ISAC) U11 badminton tournament. The singles matches were divided into eight groups of four different players in both the boys and girls tournaments. The YCIS Beijing players performed well with great effort and enthusiasm and most were able to proceed to the elimationation stages, in which one loss would result in being unable to progress.

Jack Duhon and James Zhou played very positively in the group stage but succumbed to tough losses in the knockout rounds that prevented them from going further. The final hope was now placed upon the shoulders of Isabelle Holthuis, with every team player giving her vociferous support. Isabelle delivered upon her peers’ expectations. After overcoming many challenges during the match, she eventually defeated her opponent and won the singles championship!

On 8 March, the U19 badminton competition took place, in which Katie Zhang, Jean Juan and Mandy Chung were representing YCIS Beijing. Jean and Katie are a strong doubles team and won all their matches in the group stage. After a narrow loss in the semi-finals, the girls eventually finished in fourth place. Mandy Chung had a mixed experience in the group stages, but was able to increase her focus in the playoff stages. She worked her way through the elimination stages and reached the final. Mandy played a valiant match but finished as the runner-up for the second consecutive year. It was a great result in a very strong field. All students carried themselves very well and were outstanding ambassadors for YCIS Beijing, playing with determination and sportsmanship.
