2014-2015 Falcon Sports in Review

Share this articleShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestGoogle+

Last year’s sports results marked a high point for the Falcon athletes, with over 50 championships and just as many top three trophies earned throughout the season. The 2014-2015 Falcon teams did not match that number.

They exceeded it.

Following the 28 weekend sports tournaments hosted here at NIST and many others across Thailand and Southeast Asia, the Falcons amassed 55 team and individual championships, and even more second and third place trophies. Their dominance in both BISAC and SEASAC events was so absolute that they earned the top overall SEASAC ranking in sports in which they participated.

However, as celebrated at the annual sports banquets, the weight of these accomplishments pales next to the tenacity, commitment and personal growth every athlete has demonstrated throughout the year. Over the past several years, NIST has worked hard to provide opportunities for all students to challenge themselves through sporting opportunities, whether in competitive sports or recreational programmes such as the Falcon Sports Development Programme.

The pride in being a Falcon is not only in a trophy. It’s in the dedication to teammates, the grace shown to opponents in both wins and losses, and the willingness to work through adversity. We are proud of all of our players for the courage it takes to simply challenge themselves. Thanks to them, and to all of our coaches, parents and supporters for another amazing year.

Go Falcons!
