Berkeley Triumph in GBAC Swim Finals
In the final GBAC swim meet of the 2015-6 school year Berkeley's middle and high school teams came up trumps, collecting two team trophies and winning a host of close fought races throughout the tournament.
There were 5 schools represented on the day and it was a fabulous showcase opportunity for all involved.
Berkeley's Coach Mike was ecstatic with his teams performances and had this to say after the event,
'the way GBAC has grown and flourished is a wonder. We are now having events in all sports and bringing together 100's of like-minded people to compete and excel on a regular basis is a great thing. The kids love it, the parents love it and we just keep getting stronger and stronger. The competitions are fantastic the league action superb and we look forward to continued growth in the next school year. I am so proud of all of our athletes for the dedication and hard work they have put in. Morning practice, afternoon practice, 5k runs, weekend work, all this and more, just to be a part of the team. Our kids take it in their stride and it showed today as they swam their hearts out. I am one proud coach and look forward to the next season with an even greater amount of schools and athletes participating in the GBAC. Our league and sports are contagious and once students become involved there is no turning back!'
Many congratulations go out for all the member schools and participating athletes over the course of the last school year and all parents and coaches throughout the whole of the organizations for making it better, bigger and more successful on a regular basis.
The Greater Bangkok Athletics Conference will be having its annual general meeting on the 10th June at Berkeley International School to set schedules up for the 2016-7 school year.
All schools are welcome to join and get involved in the great things we do.
