QISN HS Volleyball tournament results

This past weekend our High School Volleyball season ended with the annual Qingdao International School’s Network (QISN) tournament.
Having already some success in the tournaments (YEASA & iSC) we participated in during the season, our students again showed the strength of our program.
Missing many of our Varsity players, our boys won 2nd place and our girls 3rd place!

We are mindful that we are still a work in progress and that building the culture we want takes time.
We had another great season...Well done Dolphins!!! 🐬

Thank you coaches and students for your many hours of work and sacrifice!
One Team, building together!
