On Tuesday 12th November BST hosted the ISTAA end of season tournament. TIS (Tokyo International School) and KIST (K International School) attended the tournament and all three schools had two teams playing in two pools.

On court one, BST A team started the evening playing KIST. With some excellent serving from Marie Goto and Lisa Taniguchi, the first set was over very quickly and BST held a convincing lead.  After half time, BST lost a little concentration and struggled to take control of the game; nevertheless we did manage to retain the lead throughout and ran out 2-0 winners.

After a break, the A team played TIS.  We knew the teams would be evenly-matched so BST needed to be on our game and focused.  We were successful in doing this during the first set and, with some great serving again from Marie and Lisa, were able to retain the lead and win the first set comfortably.  The second set was a different story: BST were unable to take a secure lead as TIS just kept returning the ball. It was point for point during most the set.  BST managed to get a small three point lead and then TIS would pull back. It was a very exciting and nailbiting climax to the season: BST took the serve at 24-24, Heloise Brown served and BST scored the next two points, securing the win and the ITSAA Champions title for the second year running.

On court two, the B team started the evening against TIS. BST were working well together but failed to gain the early lead. The score stayed quite even throughout but always with BST doing the chasing, two points or so behind. We just couldn’t claw back to even stevens and it was TIS who took the first set. BST started strong during the second set and the score again stayed quite even between the two teams but once again, TIS always had that small lead and won the second set as well.

The BST B team played KIST in the final game of the evening and looked much stronger: with some great serving from Antonia Clarke, the girls were moving around and communicating well, allowing them to take, and keep, the lead in the first set.  BST remained strong throughout the second set, taking the opportunity to attack KIST whenever possible, and took control of the game. With some strong serving and working together, they kept up the pressure and won the second set, ending up second overall in the B team tournament, which was a very pleasing result.

A great end to the season; well done, girls!

MS Girls Volleyball – Kanto Plains

MS Girls Volleyball – Kanto plains end of season tournament

Saturday 2nd November at ASIJ.

BST 0- 2 ISSH

BST started the morning in pool B with ASIJ and ISSH (International School of Sacred Heart) as a seeding result from previous games this season.  BST played ISSH first on court one, and opened the game up by winning the first serve, from Jimin, and the match was away, both teams eager to win and show their skills.  ISSH took the lead, BST fought back: Lisa delivered five great attacking serves taking the score to 6-6.  ISSH took the lead again, though, and the first set ended 14-21 to ISSH.  BST knew they could do better and worked extremely hard in the second set,  taking an 11-04 lead but were unable to maintain this as ISSH served some strong balls, narrowing the gap to 16-10.  BST’s frustration started to show as we became a little ragged – and ISSH overhauled us, eventually winning the second set 17-21.

BST 0-2 ASIJ

The next game was immediately after so BST were warmed up and ready to attack ASIJ (American School in Japan).  Although we started off scoring point for point, ASIJ soon took a lead of 12-08; BST continued to look strong and worked hard, returning ASIJs hits which took them – and the spectators – by surprise.  Nevertheless, ASIJ held the lead and took the first set 21-14.   BST started off strong in the second set and took control of the game, attacking ASIJ and moving around the court really working together as a team.  BST were ahead 07-05 after Jimin delivered five amazing serves.  BST maintained the lead, thanks to some great serving from the rest of the team, and halfway through we were up 13-12. However, ASIJ attacked back and BST lost a few points cheaply.  Lisa successfully delivered five magnificent serves, bringing the score 18-19 to ASIJ: there was only one point in it, but unfortunately ASIJ served two strong balls to sneak over the line at 21-19 to ASIJ. A great effort from BST.

BST 2-0 YIS

As BST had lost both the two preliminary games, we went through to the consolation round for 7th place.  First up were YIS (Yokohama International School), and after a three-hour break between matches, BST were a little slow out of the blocks: YIS took the lead, and we were just unable to get it together.  The score moved to 19-23 in favour of YIS and another loss was looming large before us. Up stepped Jimin, to deliver five amazing serves bringing the score to 24-23 to BST. After some ding-dong serving, the score edged up to 26-25. As the pressure shifted in our favour, Heloise delivered two mighty serves and BST took the first set 28-26.

Going into the second set BST knew they had to work together more and attack YIS.  We took total control and were soon up 14-7. BST continued to serve well and attack YIS at every opportunity and in the blink of an eye the second set was over: a convincing 25-16 win.

BST 2-0 NIS

The last game of the day was BST against NIS (Nishimachi); having beaten them earlier in the week, BST felt quietly confident. The game started slowly, point for point, but BST took the lead and were up 10-4 after some great serves from Jimin.  NIS managed to claw points back due to some careless errors and one or two over-confident misjudgments from BST.  Fortunately, we hung on and pulled it back together to attack them once more and take the first set 25-18.  The girls were now visibly tiring – but so were NIS.  BST started the serve in the second set but again were unable to take the lead and NIS were up 5-3 after the first few minutes.  Enter Lisa, with five successful attacking serves, followed by Anne with five more. Heloise continued the surge with three sledgehammers and suddenly BST were leading 19-6.  NIS were simply unable to gain possession as Jimin followed with some great overhead serves and BST ended up dominating the second set, running out 25-9 winners: a very convincing game and a very pleasing result.

A long but a well-played day.  BST finished 7th overall in the MS Girls’ Kanto Plain Volleyball tournament 2013.

Saturday 5th October – BST V CAJ

B Team

CAJ 2 – 0 BST

It was a wet morning and long journey to Christian Academy Japan (CAJ).  The B team played first.  Nada Abdelhaim returned to play for the first time this year and a there was a debut appearance from Evie Hadlow and Eldoie Douihet.  BST took a while to get into the game with new players on court who were unsure of the rotation.  CAJ seemed more positive and had a lot of support from the side line.  Unfortunately BST were unable to take control of the game and lost the first set 25-17.  As they went into the second set they began to look more like a team and started communicating and moving around the court but CAJ were more organized and eager for the ball and BST lost the second set 25-16.

A Team

CAJ 2 – 0 BST

The BST A team started off very strong as Jimin Park won first service from the captains toss and Marie Goto opened the game for us.  For the first few points it was even at 3-3 but CAJ soon settled in and became the stronger opponents, taking the led to 8-4.  BST won back the service but were unable to maintain it.  CAJ played a very skillful and tactical game and BST were unable to get themselves together to handle this.  CAJ took a strong led 11-5 and the first set continued this way with the final score being 25-9 at the end.

BST were extremely disappointed by the score and went into the second set fighting, by communicating and moving around the court more and going for every ball.  Their performance was outstanding they worked really well together and very hard.  The score was even to start with, again 3-3 however this time BST took the lead and with some great serving from Jimin Park BST secured a lead of 8-5.  BST looked much stronger and were able to return CAJs hits, taking them by surprise after the first set.  Marie Goto served 4 in a row helping BST to take the lead of 11-6.  BST maintained the lead by a few points for the best part of the game.  Both teams worked hard to try and attack each other but both teams kept on returning it which meant some of the rallies were really long.  BST held the led until 24-22 but CAJ took the service and with their big home support were able to even the score.   As the winning team must win by two clear points the game continued.  It was point for point and neither team were able to get that two point lead, at 27-27, CAJ took the serve and finally won the game 29-27.  BST worked so hard in the second set and worked amazingly as a team and should be proud of themselves.  Well done girls.

Tuesday 1st October – BST V TIS

BST 2 – 0 TIS

BST were all fired up to win this week after TIS beat BST for the first time in quite a few years the week before.  BST started off really strong; Jimin Park the captain got them warmed up and as the team was in their home surroundings they were ready from the outset, which took TIS a little by surprise enabling BST to immediately take the lead.  BST played very strongly in the first set and held the lead all the way through, finishing the set 13-25 to BST.  BST was ready and excited going into the second set and held their own all the way through, with some great serving and return hits as the girls worked together, communicating and moving around the court.  The second set finished 15-25 to BST, a confident and improved win for BST.

On Tuesday 26th of September MS BST boys’ volleyball team played their first match of the season against TIS. The team started pretty well, with some great serves from Luka and Jonah which gave us the first set 25:18

Unfortunately in the second set we didn’t concentrate and communicate well enough and ended up giving away a number of quick points. This was very frustrating as the team was 20:12 up but just couldn’t close out the match. BST lost the set 27:25

In the final set TIS played with added confidence and were serving the ball consistently putting tremendous pressure of the BST receivers. We needed to concentrate more as a team and get more digs and sets from the return of the serve. Unfortunately we lost the last set 11-15 after a close finish. Over all I think we did the best to our abilities and despite only having one training session to a team that have trained and played competitively together for the last four weeks. The boys will look to get revenge next week we TIS travel to BST to play the return fixture.

B Team – Seisen 2 – 0 BST

The B team started the evening by taking the lead over Seisen and within the first few minutes it was 7-1 to BST.  This was a debut for Ella Sundstrom and the first game of the season for Bella Sharp.  Seisen then won back the service and with a few consistent serves that BST were unable to return the score become even.  The first set finished 20-25 to Seisen.  The B team returned to the second set prepared to take control but was unable to take over Seisen who won the second set, to conclude the game.

 

A team – Seisen 2 – 0 BST

An outstanding performance from all BST players; they worked extremely hard throughout both sets and the score is not a true reflection of their hard work and commitment. BST lost both sets, 14-25 and 15-25, but they did work really well as a team, JiMin did a  great job as captain communicating and encouraging the team to keep going. BST were able to return a number of Seisen’s serves and work on setting up an attack but Seisen were just able to maintain more control in their defense.

B Team -  ASIJ 2 – 1 BST

It was the first game ever for all the B team competitors, with only a few training sessions.  It took the first set for them to settle in, and ASIJ serving took them by surprise.  By the second set they were working together as a team, returning their serves and looking a lot more confident when serving.  They took the lead at the beginning of the second set leading 7-6 and managed to hold the lead winning the second set 22-25.  The game went to three sets, it was a very even set with each time winning back their serves.  BST worked hard but finally lost 12-15.  For their first game they did extremely well and gained a lot of experience from it.

A team -  ASIJ 0 – 2 BST

The BST A team dominated the ASIJ B team comfortably winning 2 sets.  JiMin Park has taken on the role of Captain this year for the MS Volleyball team and with new additions to the school Marie Goto and Helouise Brown we have a strong starting team.  They got off to a good start with some very confident serving and won the first set 13-25.  Their confidence and ability to work together as a team continued in the second set with some great serving from JiMin Park, who served 5 great serves in a row, before Marie Goto continued.  The girls won the second set 25-14 which was a great start to the season and an excellent result.

For the High School Girls Volleyball team the games are coming thick and fast. Tonight we travelled to ASIJ to play their JV B team and we are pleased to report that BST came out comfortable winners 25-16 and 25-11. It’s also pleasing to note that three year 10 students made their High School debut tonight – congratulations Sophie Kelly, Tammy Wilson and Lizzie Rutherford.

On the volleyball front the girls played well – especially in the areas of first pass and serving. We face a much sterner test on Thursday when we travel to Seisen – another all- girls school volleyball powerhouse.

For now – it’s always nice to get a win.

Come on BST!

BST High School girls Volleyball kicked off their season this morning at ISSH. It was obvious as the morning played out that Hakuba, Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions were still ‘in the legs’ so to speak.

We eventually lost the match 2-0 (18-25 and 17-25) and while at times we played some excellent volleyball we lacked consistency at key moments.

An all girls school, ISSH is a local volleyball powerhouse and all things considered while we don’t like losing, there are some real positives to take away from this mornings match.

Come on BST!

The B team were up first against the ISSH Symbas.  The B team worked well but were unable to consistently serve over the net meaning a lot of points were given away allowing the Symbas to win, 11-25.  They went into the second set more positive and Amy Carson, the team captain, gave great encouragement from on court.  BST worked really hard in the second set and their returning of the ball and moving around on court really improved. They managed to keep the score even until half way through the game.  Then once they had lost a few points, their heads dropped and they finished the second set 18-25 to ISSH.

The A team started off really well and gained the lead due to some great serving from Yurika Yamada and working together very defensively to maintain procession.  BST remained on top of the first set winning 25-18.  ISSH came back into the second set with more fight. This meant, despite some excellent serving from BST, ISSH won the second set 25-21. A very close and tense set followed with neither team gaining the upper hand. However, with some excellent game play BST won the third set 15-13, the first A team game win of the season.

Tthe Kanto Plains end of season tournament will be the next match on Saturday November 3rd at BST.

MS Volleyball – House Tournament – Tues 9th Oct 2012

The volleyball house tournament continued last Tuesday with the Middle School participating.  Charlotte Griaud in Year 11 organised both the girls and boys tournament as part of her GCSE PE assessment.  She organsied and led the session outstandingly.

The girls’ games started with Amaterasu vs Bishamon. Amaterasu only had 4 players but managed to convincingly beat Bishamon after only two sets.  The next match was a fierce battle between Amaterasu and Tsykiyomi. As both teams were comprised completely of MS volleyball players.  It was a great game enhanced by the fact that  Amaterasu still only had 4 players meaning they had to work extremely hard  beating Tskyiyomi in the second. Unfortunately Tskyiyomi mananged to beat them in the third making it a very close game.  In the final game Tskyiyomi beat Bishamon due to some outstanding serving from Yurika Yamada, who scored 18 points in a row.  Tskyiyomi were the winners, Amaterasu second and Bishamon placed third. Bishamon did very well seeing despite not having any players from the A MS team.

The boys’ volleyball was dominated by Amaterasu, they won both all their sets and both games.  Amaterasu had some strong Year 9 players who served and returned the ball very well.   Tsykiyomi and Bishamon played the last but close game, Bishamon managed to take the lead and win two sets to nill.  In the end Amaterasu were the winners of the boys’ middle school house volleyball tournament.

Amaterasu have won both the boys and girls High school games and now adding to that the boys middle school volleyball so they already have a lead in the points this term, let’s see what happens during sports day.

The B team’s match against NIS was a first for both Antonia Clarke and Kiuko Notoyo. Despite Amy Carson’s encouragement from on court, BST were unable to work together as a team. This, combined with strong serves from NIS, meant they lost both sets. Regardless of this it was a great experience for the team and a good first match for the new players.

The A team followed with a strong first set, narrowly losing with a score of 23-25 to NIS. The score remained close throughout the match, creating an intense and exciting game. In the second set however, BST were able to take a convincing lead over NIS due to some amazing serves from Mia Rothrock and Yurika Yamada scoring 12 points in a row. The second set finished 25-19 to BST.  The third set was tense as NIS began to get stronger and the BST team was starting to get tired, losing focus.  The score was back to being even point for point, at 12-12, 3 serves from Yurika gave us a two point lead, but NIS won back the serve and scored making the score 15-14 to BST.  BST needed to win by two clear points. Unfortunately they were unable to hold the serve and finally lost 15-17 to NIS.  A disappointing result, as the team had worked so hard together.

This week, we had the girls and boys High School house volleyball between the three houses, Amaterasu, Bishamon and Tsukiyomi organized by Aakriti as part of her GCSE PE assessment.

 

High School Girls.

Amaterasu seemed to be the firm favorites for the girls to clinch the first win of the evening as they squared up against Bishamon but solid serving in the 3rd set from Maria gave the underdogs a 2-1 victory over Amaterasu. Straight after the 2-1 victory, Bishamon were on court again to play Tsukiyomi who only had 4 players in their team! Despite this Emily, Rayna, Areej and Iona made sure Bishamon were left stunned for underestimating their opponent as they came out on top with a hard labored 2-1 victory. Upon seeing what happened to Bishamon, Amaterasu went into the 3rd game of the evening against Tsukiyomi focused and made no mistake of underestimating their opponents, as a result they cruised to a 2-0 victory over their Tsukiyomi.

The results from the 3 games meant that there was a tie between Amaterasu and Bishamon and as a result, the two houses would have to square up against each other once more to decide the overall winner. The two houses played a 1 set game up to 8 points and it was Amaterasu this time that came out on top after they held their nerves to win 8-4. So overall after the four action packed games played on the evening, Amaterasu came 1st, Bishamon 2nd and Tsukiyomi 3rd.

 

High School Boys

The scene was set for the battle of the big hitters….. On a balmy Tuesday evening the three houses drew their lots. Amaterasu to play Bishamon, Bishamon then to play Tsukiyomi and finally Amaterasu to play the Tsukitomi. Vibrant colours of green, orange and purple punctuated the tiles as bodies thrown in sacrifice dove to stop the ball hitting the floor. All three matches were a joy to behold.

In the first match Bishamon with the power and precision of Vitor Bronzatto took on the guile and athleticism of Josh Tateno and his Amaterasu team. Green won the first, orange won the second and in the final set the Orange pipped the Green Machine. Tsukiyomi saw themselves as the underdogs and in the first set it seemed that the Purple David’s would indeed slay the Green Goliaths. Order however was restored and Bishamon won the second and third sets comfortably. The stage was set for the final match as a Tsukiyomi win would mean a three way tie. Amaterasu were just too strong and ran out comfortable 2-0 winners. The final standing Amaterasu 1st, Bishamon 2nd and Tsukiyomi third. Great volleyball, healthy competition; overall a great evening!!!

The B team struggled to get into the first set as they were unable to get it together as a team unfortunately but they learnt a lot. They were able to work better in the second set and start to attack Seisen but were unable to retain their serve so unable to gain points.

The A team played really well with some great serving with serving from Lisa Taniguchi and BST were leading 11-7 then Seisen stepped up their game and pulled back a few points finishing the set 25-21 to Seisen. The girls went into the second set really positive and again the set was even until half way through and then BST were unable to hold off the Seisen powerful returns, and defensive play.

All girls worked hard and together it was tough environment for them to be at Seisen home ground.

Well done all.

The A team were then ready to play ASIJ A team, they started off strong and were working really well together as a team with some great attacking plays but ASIJ managed to get through with their powerful serving and short balls over the net. We lost the first set but went into the second very positive, but with a few injuries to Mia Ryan and Yurika Yamada we found it difficult in the second set and although they worked hard we lost the second set.

Four games in one morning.  It was the first game for some of the B team players, Lauren Chambers, and Amy Carson and the first time that all the B team players had played together against another school.  The score doesn’t reflect the effort, they put in, it wasn’t until the second set that they started to gain some confidence and settle into the game. The A team were then taken by surprise during the first set of their game and were unable to make a comeback in the second set, although Yurika Yamadas serving was outstanding she bought the team back from 11-18 down to 16-18 with 5 great serves in a row, they were unable to win the last few points of the second set and YIS left winning both games.

 

The B team were worked hard against AOBA B team and really started to develop their skills, unfortunately there serving let them down a little, but they worked extremely hard and learnt a lot from the game.  The girls started communicating and moving around the court really well.  The A team put up a tremendous performance against ABOA A team, some outstanding serving from Mia Ryan and  Lisa Taniguchi serving 5 successful balls in a row.  BST lost the first set although it was pretty even for the first half of the set and then BST lost focus and lost the first set 16-25.  BST entered the second set a different team with confidence and fire, it was even points throughout the game with excellent scoring and team play they won the second set 25-17.  In the final set BST dominated AOBA with a defensive play and setting up strong attacking plays.  Unfortunately BST didn’t manage to hold their lead in the last few points and lost 13-15, but what a nail biting performance.

 

Four great games by 13 great players well done girls you worked extremely hard.

BST V CAJ

A team lost 2-0

B team won 2-0

The B team played first and with BSTs two new players to the court, Bella Sharp year 7 and Shuko Fukama year 8.  They both played extremely well for their first game ever, Bella made 4 successful serves in a row.  The BST team worked well together as a new team and won the first set.  They then went into the second set very strong and confident once again some great serving from Lisa Taniguchi, who served 5 balls in a row in both the first and second set.   The whole team work together to win the second set 25-14.

The A team worked really hard together and the first set was even points most the way through the game, but the first set ended 20 -25 to CAJ.  The BST girls knew they could give CAJ A team a good game and continued to work hard throughout the second set but at BST got tired CAJ remained strong.  Every time BST were down by a few points they managed to bring the score back to even and then CAJ would manage to get ahead again.  The last few points were very tense and it was all down the good clear serving but unfortunately BST lost the second set 22-25. Overall, an outstanding performance by all players.

BST V St Maurs

A team lost 2-0

B team won 2-0

The first game of the session and after only a few practice sessions the girls demonstrated their skill and got off to a great start.  BST only had one team so the same girls represented BST in both A and B games which was tough.  Having not played together as a team since last year the girls go straight into the St Maurs B team game, winning the first set 25-22, with some great serving from Lisa Taniguchi and Yurika Yamada who served three amazing serves at the end of the set.  Into the next set BST held their own and won 25-19, with some outstanding serving from Mia Ryan.

After a short rest BST played against St Maurs A team, who had been patiently waiting to play and watching the B team play eyeing up their opposition.  In the first set BST doing were doing extremely well and giving St Maurs a good game with each team continuously attacking each other.  Despite some outstanding serving from Mia Ryan and Yurika Yamada BST lost the first set 18-25.  The girls continued to work hard and as team they also lost the second set 18-25.  It was still an outstanding performance by the 8 girls, well done.
