Congratulations to our Falcon athletes who competed for NIST in tournaments from 31 October to 2 November. With the first season of sports wrapping up, our Falcons are SEASAC and BISAC champions in basketball, rugby, soccer and volleyball! Their performance and conduct, both on and off the courts and fields, was fantastic, and the school is proud of their contributions throughout the season as they acted as ambassadors for the greater NIST community.
In the most recent weekend tournaments, 18 NIST teams were split across two countries, with 18 teams, 250 athletes, 33 coaches and a virtual army of supportive parents taking part. While the final results were excellent, the more important return came in the form of the commendations our students received for their conduct. Our differing sports share one commonality: they are frameworks that not only promote physical health, but also develop skills in leadership and teamwork. In doing so they align to NIST’s vision of learning and allow our athletes to apply the lessons on the court and field to their lives.
We look forward to seeing many of our athletes playing again throughout the year in the other sporting opportunities.
