The Second Annual Kids Cup Volleyball Tournament
The Lamers: The boys on the team, "M", "Ko", and "K" are from SDA School and the girls are from Saipan International School.
On Sunday, March 15, 2009 some of our students participated in the second annual Kids Cup Volleyball Tournament. Our team did very well--they placed second overall, and played from nine in the morning until about five in the evening. They were coached by our preschool director and "big sister" to the boys, Amy Foote, with assistance from our school's volleyball coach the talented Ms. French. We are quite proud of the kids (though don't get me started on the name they chose for their team--The Lamers. I hate it!) The kids had fun, won some cool prizes, and I had a lot of fun watching them play. It was a great way to spend a Saipan Sunday.
