Sports Update: Friday Night Fixtures at Lincoln

KATHMANDU, Nepal. — On Friday, January 12th the Lincoln campus was buzzing with the youth football team playing against the Grassroots Futsal Academy, and the LS shuttlers taking on Malpi School. In the football, Grassroots brought 25 youth players, along with their coaches, to engage in an entertaining game that saw lots of end to end action. It was a high scoring encounter, with all members of the LS team getting time out on the field. In the Badminton, Malpi brought some skillful players with them, which was a good opportunity for our players to get some practice before SAISA. The Lincoln student-athletes, however, continued to show their level of growth and confidently withstood the challenge, winning the majority of their matches.

On Saturday morning, the LS gym was once again the stage for a NISSA girls’ basketball fixture, with the Snow Leopards taking on KISC. The girls got off to a great start and the game was evenly matched heading into the final quarter until KISC pulled away, winning 32-23. Nonetheless, the girls continue to show good growth and are confident of improving on this performance in the upcoming NISSA Final 4 tournament.
