Basketball teams at the Great Wall

ASIJ captures Great Wall Shootout championships

The girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams opened in the 2012-13 season in November  where they competed in the Great Wall Shootout Tournament hosted by the International School of Beijing. ASIJ has participated in the GWS before, but this year, for the first time, both the girls’ and boys’ teams won the tournament championship, going undefeated throughout. This early season experience has paid off as both teams are now playing in the Kanto league. The girls’ varsity is undefeated and on their way to capturing the league title and the boys’ varsity are strong contenders, as the season reaches the pivotal February stretch.
