ISST day one round-up



ASL’s volleyball, soccer and field hockey teams were all in action today at ISSTs. The action resulted in a flurry of victories for some teams and disappointing losses for others. While girls volleyball swept to four consecutive victories, boys soccer suffered two defeats in what striker Dariush Yazdanpanah (’15) described as “a nightmare” of a day. Boys volleyball won three games but lost against ACS Cobham. Omar Elmasry (’14) described their game against Frankfurt International School, which they won 2-1, as an “absolutely epic match.” Girls soccer drew one game and won another, with Paige Norris (’13) scoring their only goal of the day. The games enabled them to finish first in their group. Field hockey drew one game and lost the other.
