St. John’s teams achieve great results at the fall ISSTs

stj_lions_circleThere were quite a few medals and trophies on show at the Kings Cross train station in London on Saturday night, as the girls soccer team took home the third place trophy and bronze medals and the cross country team finished second overall, with the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys teams both winning gold, the JV Girls team winning bronze and two runners finishing second and third in their races.

The boys soccer team fought until the very end of the championship game, but fell just short of winning and being promoted to division 1. The team played an excellent season and should be very proud of taking home the second place trophy and silver medals.

Cross Country (Division 2 at TASIS, England) – Overall: 2nd place (just two points behind the first place team and promotion to D1)

Varsity Girls: 1st place
Varsity Boys: 1st place
JV Girls: 3rd place
JV Boys: 5th place

The team also won the Varsity Girls individual silver medal and the Varsity Boys individual bronze medal. Congratulations to all runners and coaches for an amazing championship performance!

Girls Soccer (Division 1 in London) – Bronze medal game: STJ vs. TASIS 3-0

The team finished the tournament on an extreme high with another excellent performance. On another cold, rainy day, the girls once again displayed toughness, determination and skill, as they emphatically beat a good TASIS team and rewarded themselves with the third place trophy and bronze medals. The team finished the tournament with three shutouts in five games, only conceding four goals.

Boys Soccer (Division 2 in Vienna) – Championship game: STJ vs. Cairo 1-2

For the second year in a row, the boys suffer a heartbreaking loss in the championship game. The boys have much to be proud of, having completed yet another excellent season (15 wins, 7 losses, 2 draws) and experiencing wonderful moments at the ISST’s, beating ISB 4-0 and winning in penalty kicks against the hosts in the semi-finals. The team has shown that it belongs in division 1 and will come back stronger next year to finally gain promotion.

Girls Volleyball (Division 1 in Cobham) – 5th place game: STJ vs. TASIS 1-3

Boys Volleyball (Division 1 at STJ) – Bronze medal game: STJ vs. Frankfurt 0-3

After an excellent Friday, the boys lost in the bronze medal game to a good team. The team’s overall record this season is 13 wins and 8 losses. Congratulations on a good season! Overall, the tournament was a success and we would like to thank anyone who was in any way involved in putting on this championship.
