ABC Talent Basketball Spring 2012 Tournament

ABC TALENT Basketball Program: Spring 2012 Interschool Tournament

It’s Game Time!

On Saturday, June 9, sounds of intense competition filled the gymnasium of St. Paul American School (SPAS) as 77 players, 113 student spectators, 11 ABC staff, 11 partner school principals and teachers, 20 SPAS high school volunteers, and 37 TALENT volunteers gathered to participate in the 2nd TALENT inter-school basketball tournament!
Each of ABC’s four partner schools divided into two teams, and played 3 rounds. The teams of young, capable female athletes who have been training this past semester not only showed off their basketball skills, but also demonstrated their understanding of teamwork and competitive camaraderie. Xinghe overcame Zhenhua to win-it, and was recognized with a trophy (see below) and a museum field trip for all 23 basketball players, courtesy of our event sponsor, Sinopec Engineering Incorporation. Tournament final rivals met at half-stage to shake hands to conclude the award ceremony. 

Thanks to all the dedicated coaches/teachers who made it out to the courts every Saturday to train the players, including the delivery of lessons with important character development implications on and off the court!
