The Shark's Tale

  • Good luck to our boys and girls volleyball teams who are at the ACAMIS tournament in Suzhou this weekend.  Go Sharks!
  • The Middle School Boys Soccer team remained undefeated through their first three games. In game two against ISQ, the boys won a 4-2 game with a strong defensive performance. Marc scored his second goal of the season to open the scoring, and then Andrew added two more goals to increase his season total to four. Steven scored the final goal of the game, ensuring a QISS victory! In the third game, the boys played a dominant game on offense and defense, defeating MCQ 3-0. Marc scored a hat trick in the first half, and a stout defense led by Sebey and Alex helped their goalkeeper John earn his first shutout of the season. Last Friday the team suffered its first loss, but they are ready to compete in the Qingdao Cup this weekend. The first game will be against ISQ A here on the QISS home pitch. The rest of the tournament will be held at MCQ on Saturday. Let's go Sharks!
