Victory in Berlin and Upcoming Tournaments, Championships and Friendlies


Amazing Athletic News from Berlin

Last week, the FIS Cross Country team (nine Elementary School, eleven Middle School and two High School students) traveled to the Berlin British School to compete at the GISST and Interschool competition. Although they have practiced for just a few weeks and mostly had no previous experience at this level they performed really well, bringing some individual medals home.

  • Nele won the girls G3 race and a gold medal with the second best time ever.
  • Aisha won the girls G5 race and a gold medal setting the new GISST Interschool record in this category.
  • Solytha finished third in the U14 Girls race, winning the bronze.

Way to go FIS Dragons! And a big thank you to their coaches Mrs. Lohwasser, Mr. Phillipson, Ms. Stöth, Mr. Dubbe and Mrs. Williamson.

Friendly Fixtures

This Saturday, October 13, five FIS teams will be participating in Friendly fixtures. The U14 and Varsity Badminton as well as Varsity Boys and Girls Football teams are traveling to the Bavarian International School (BIS) near Munich to compete. They will leave FIS at 7:00 and should be back by 17:00. All coaches and additional two FIS chaperones will accompany the teams.

The same day, our Varsity Girls Volleyball team is heading to Katterbach, where they will play against the host American Middle High School Ansbach, and another visiting school from Brussels. The girls accompanied by their coach Mr. Haug will depart at 7:45 and be back at FIS around 14:00.

Good luck everyone!
