Fighting Eagles!

Wow! What a fast paced weekend we had with a basketball tournament at School of the Nations. The tournament started Friday Night and finished Sunday afternoon. Schools in the tournament were the American School (EAB), School of the Nations (EDN), Marista, and Santo Antonio.
 The girls played three games on Saturday. Their skills have improved greatly, but were so tired by the end of the night! They took a lot of tumbles and played hard. 
  The boys had 2 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday. Some of their games were very close. They played hard and kept their spirits up despite some challenges with calls. 
  We would like to congratulate our boys and girls teams for sacrificing their weekend to play in their first tournament. The drive that these students have shown has been such an inspiration to watch. Let's go Eagles! 
   Please stay posted for future games!

Contending for the Faith,

April Knutson
