Season Recap: Middle School Tennis

The Middle School Tennis Team overcame many obstacles to have a successful season! With many new players, the returning players stepped into leadership roles and helped keep the team positive as many players battled injuries. By the end of the season, every player had won at least one match, and everyone improved their overall game.

“Each student-athlete improved a lot and represented ISI very well,” Coach Zach Haley said. “Remi Dassonville had a winning record in matches (5-3), and all of our student-athletes won matches throughout the season. The biggest obstacle we faced was injuries. We were a small team, to begin with, and four of our players dealt with injuries throughout the season.”

Players didn’t let injuries stop them from setting personal goals and pushing themselves hard to improve and achieve them throughout the season. With many of the players being new to the sport, they had to learn not only tennis skills but also how to be good teammates and how to push through difficult matches mentally. 

“I think I really wanted to focus on my serves and volleys while playing tennis,” Grade 6 player Lauren Ho said. “I really wanted to focus on going in front of the court more often. My favorite memory was when I won my first game playing tennis. I always wanted to win a game, but I didn’t have the nerve to really concentrate but instead got emotional.”

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
