U16 Boys Volleyball – Hosted by AISJ

U16 Boys Volleyball from BISJ participated in the RSAC meet at AISJ last Friday. There were two teams both played very well and were top contenders in the tournament. Aly Fetouh (Y11) captained his team through the tournament with no losses and were thrilled to beat KAUST in a exciting third set. Laith Lolas (Y11) captained the other BISJ team and unlike Aly’s team, they came up against Yanbu, who were tactically clever and ended up beating BISJ.

Aly Fetouh and Saif Sabban scored a number of points by placing the ball deep into the opponents half, Laith Lolas quickness and commitment saw him diving and sprinting for wayward spikes or mis-hits, Mohamad AlKaff and Skander Ghorbal were very reliable at the net while Suhayl Uthman did a great job of communicating on court. All players improved over the day and are keen to face their rivals (particularly Yanbu and KAUST) at the SAIKAC tournament at BISJ soon. Hopefully we will have lots of spectators cheering our boys on.
