Phoenix Athletics Highlights

Sept. 19, 2017

Athletics Highlights - Tuesday, October 17

ISNS Team Phoenix have had a jam-packed schedule since the October break! With both High School Volleyball and Middle School Soccer season’s drawing to a close there has been a lot to play for.

Our U19 Boys Volleyball team qualified for SISAC Play-Offs as the number 1 seed, having won all five of their league games. At the Play-Offs, ISNS's training paid off against SWIS in the semi-final coming up for the win against their opposition 2-0. The final presented a much tougher task against a strong QSI team who ISNS has never beaten in the past. ISNS competed admirably and put in a fantastic display, but unfortunately lost the final 0-2 (20-25, 19-25) to end the season as the SISAC runners-up. A great achievement and effort from our players and coaches! A special mention to 3 players who were voted as part of the 2017-18 SISAC All-Star Team: Hao Chen, Long Fu and Daniel Gavra. 

Recently, the boys also enjoyed success at the PRC Red Division Volleyball Championships at the International School of Macau. The boys lost a heart-breaking semi-final to the eventual winners TIS by 2 sets to 1, but re-grouped well to beat NCPA 2-0 in the third place game to ensure they returned to Shenzhen with some much deserved silverware! 


Our U19 Girls Volleyball team similarly qualified for SISAC Play-Offs as the number 1 seed after an impressive 4-1 season. The girls overcame BASIS in the semi-finals but unfortunately suffered the same fate as our boys’ team, losing 0-2 (17-25, 17-25) to a very strong QSI team. ISNS hung with their opponents every step of the way and should take great heart and pride from a competitive performance against a team that have beaten us by 20+ points many times in the past. Great effort girls and a really impressive SISAC season – our best so far! Another special mention to three of our players who were voted as part of the 2017-18 SISAC All-Star Team: Sammy Ko, Tiffany Faass and Michelle Lu. 

ISNS had the pleasure of hosting the PRC Girls Red Division Volleyball Championships on Saturday, October 14. It was a fantastic occasion as we welcomed 6 International Schools from Shenzhen, Macau, Nanshan and Dongguan. ISNS girls finished 2nd  in their pool but sadly lost their first play-off game to NCPA, finishing up in 5th place in the competition. It was great experience for our girls and a good lesson in the rigours of tournament play ahead of our team’s biggest competition of the year – ACAMIS Volleyball at Hong Kong Academy on October 26 – 29.  

We wish both of our teams the best of luck at the tournament! Let’s go Phoenix, lets go……#PhoenixPride

In Middle School Soccer, both our boys and girls’ teams agonizingly missed qualifying for SISAC play-offs, both teams finishing in 5th place when needing to break the top 4. Both teams travelled to SWIS for their final game of the season, our girls needing only a tie and our boys needing a win to qualify. Sadly, neither was quite able to pull off the result that they needed and our girls went down 0-4 and our boys 0-2. This was a tough end to the SISAC season for both our teams, but with many grade 6 and 7 students occupying key roles in the teams, there’s plenty of reason for optimism for the future of ISNS Middle School Soccer!!

Both teams now look forward with anticipation to the end of season PRC Soccer Championships on Saturday, October 20. ISNS will host the girls’ competition, while our boys team will travel to the American International School of Guangzhou (AISG). Good luck to both our teams, we hope they can win some very well deserved trophies!

Athletics Highlights - Tuesday, September 26

Season One of Phoenix Athletics 2017-18 is well under way and our student-athletes have been battling hard in both High School Volleyball and Middle School Soccer.

Our Under 19 Boys Volleyball Team continues to shine and are yet to be beaten this year, boasting a perfect 9-0 record. They currently sit in first place in the SISAC league table and won all five games of their PRC exchange at the QSI International School of Dongguan last weekend.

The Under 19 Girls also performed admirably in the event and walked away with a 3-2 record after well-deserved victories over TIS (Macao), ULC and QSID International Schools. The girls team also currently sits in first  place in the SISAC league table and is guaranteed a play-off spot at the SISAC finals hosted by ISNS on Monday, October 16. We encourage as many students and parents as possible to come down and cheer on Mrs. Rogers team! 

As we proceed into October we wish both of our teams the best of luck in their upcoming SISAC, PRC and ACAMIS Championships. 


 In Middle School soccer, our girls team recently competed in the PRC Blue Division Exchange at the British School of Guangzhou. They battled the heat and their three opponents to walk away with a 1-1-1 record. The team are also holding their own in the SISAC league and currently sit in fourth place after a 3-2 win over BASIS and an 0-3 loss to GOS.

Our Middle School boys team continue to work hard and are making swift progress and improvements. The young side which consists mostly of Grade 6 and 7 students are still searching for their first victory of the season but have recently turned in admirable displays against both BASIS and GOS. The team currently sits in sixth place in the SISAC League Table.

We wish both our soccer teams much success this week as they compete away at QSI (Shekou) and SIS at Shenzhen Bay!

Athletics Highlights - Tuesday, September 19

Phoenix Pride


It has been a jam-packed week for the ISNS Phoenix. Last Wednesday, our Middle School Boys and Girls teams took to the field for their first soccer match of the season. 

Both teams faced BASIS and their football form was flawless. 

Our Middle School boys fought exceptionally hard, focused on defense, remaining competitive in the offense but unfortunately missed out in a 1-2 loss. 

Our Middle School girls powered through, trailing in the first half for an "edge-of-your-seat" come back to win in the second half 3-2. 

Both teams came out strong, their phoenix pride even stronger. It was a great start to the season and we look forward to seeing our young Phoenix rise to every challenge at every game! 

Over the weekend, our Middle School boys traveled to Guangzhou to play in a friendly tournament against four schools in the region; American International School of Guangzhou, International School of Dongguan (ISD), British School of Guangzhou and The Learning College Dongguan (TLC). It was great preparation for our major tournaments coming up in three weeks!
