MS Girls Volleyball team, CEESA - Istanbul

From May 9 to 12th NOVA’s MS Girls Volleyball team participated in the CEESA Volleyball Tournament hosted by Istanbul International Community School (IICS). The 8 participating teams are IICS - Dolphins, American School of Warsaw - Warsaw Warriors, International School of Latvia – LYNX, The International School of Azerbaijan – TISA TITANS, International School of Prague – Falcons, Anglo-American School of Moscow – Penguins, Pechersk School International Kyiv – Panthers and NOVA International Schools Skopje – SUPERNOVA.

During the first day, our NOVA girls won 2 games (versus Warsaw Warriors and Latvia LYNX), lost 1 game against the host school by 1 point and ranked 2nd in the group. SUPERNOVA girls started Day 2 with a closely won game against the International School of Azerbaijan and secured the ticket to the placement games. After a really competitive and tight re-match with the host IICS for the 3rd place and lost at the 3rd set, NOVA team got the 4th place out of 8 teams.

Being part of this tournament and playing versus other skillful teams was a great learning experience for team. The coaches are proud to say that our girls have handled both the wins and losses gracefully. The SUPERNOVA girls demonstrated skills, team work, good behavior and resilience throughout the tournament, which got them the SPORTSMANSHIP award.
