Boys’ Volleyball Team Exceed Expectations in Colombo
On the first day we were to play the host school in front of the home crowd. We took the victory in an intense three set battle against the Geckos. All of us were very pleased with the way we played. The second game on day two was a bit shaky against Lahore in another three set encounter, but we managed to claw ourselves out trouble and snatch another victory. The next morning we had to play against AISD (Dhaka), a great team with immense individual players, who managed to defeat us in an intense and yet another three set match. The team was showing great improvement from where we first started. We also got together after each game to reflect upon what we did well and what we could improve. We then went on to claim victory in the next two games against ISOI (Islamabad) and AISD JV (Dhaka Junior Varsity) placing us in the semi-finals against KAS (Karachi). This team had two colossal hitters, the Essa brothers, both of who had found a groove and they seemed to be unstoppable. The Lincoln boys showed great grit and passion to fight so hard against them, but the brothers just could not be stopped.
