Today we are taking on the Conquerors of ICS-P in our fourth home volleyball game of the season. Our 3-1 girls will tip-off at 3:30pm, followed by our 1-3 boys around 5:00pm.
Our previous home match saw an ICS-U student win the 50/50 raffle, Harry Park become our first entry into the "Hit 2 Win" serving competition, and almost 100 donuts sold throughout the day. The Athletic Council will continue these events today.

On Wednesday, September 28th, the CDS cross country team competed in the second meet of the season at Taejeon Christian International School. A few illnesses and obligations prevented some of the team members from attending, but those that did compete put on an excellent showing. Once again freshman Andy Park led the way for the CDS boys putting on a valiant effort on one of the more difficult cross country courses of the season. Last year’s CDS MVP, Mo Alzaki, made his comeback of the season and put on a strong showing in the competition. Rounding out the CDS competitors were Jaewan Shin, Harry Park, and Seungwan Kim who were all able to overcome the difficulties of the course and finished strong.

On Friday September 23rd, the varsity girls team hosted ICS-P in their fourth game of the season. We were able to win the game in 3 straight sets, however we didn't make it easy on ourselves. The first set was a nail biter, as we squeezed our a victory 27~25. The second and third sets were not quite as close, but they could have been. Thanks to some late rallies, we were able to come out on top. Our service was the strongest part of our game, as Christine Chun and Alicia Lee were able to lead our team on many long runs. Overall it was a good win, but CDS looked a little rusty at times. The girls will have to work hard over the next few weeks if they want to maintain the #1 seed.
Rewatch the action
On Wednesday September 21st, the CDS varsity girls team traveled to Pyongtaek. They had a strong start, as their passing was spot on and they communicated well. Rookie setter Alicia Lee stepped up in the absence of some of our starting players, and did a very good job. The first set went back and forth, as both Christine Chun and Ruby Noh served strong. Ultimately the set was decided by a late run by Pyongtaek. CDS bounced back early in the second set, only to lose the lead once again. After two disappointing losses, the girls were unable to get their rhythm back in the third. The varsity team will look to learn from their mistakes and build some momentum to finish the season off strong.
After their first victory of the season, the boys followed up with a loss on Friday against Uijeonbu, giving us a record of 1-3, They are more than capable of turning things around, but they just need to believe in themselves. Learning to fix and correct their mishaps by adjusting their prior commitments, giving more effort and showing more heart, and shifting their focus to volleyball, is a great place to start. There’s still much more left in the season, stay together!
Rewatch the action
On Wednesday, the varsity boys volleyball team travelled to Pyeongtaek and came out victorious. From the first point to the game point, and of course a few mishaps in between, the boys took care of business; looking sharp with their serving, attacking, and especially, converting the loose balls into points! Enjoying their first victory of the season, they will be looking to build on that against Uijeonbu on Friday.
Wednesday September 21st was the first cross country meet of the season held at Seoul Foreign School. There were many competitors from over 12 International Schools who participated in the meet. While there were a few on our team who participated last year, many experienced their first cross country meet on Wednesday. Along the way we did have a few injuries, but it was an overall good experience for our runners. While we were not able to place in any of the events, our runners all tried their hardest. Up and coming freshman runner Andy Park led the way for the CDS runners while veterans Jiwon Kang and Kyungbin Lim followed right behind. Overall, our runners gained a lot of experience from this meet and we look forward to competing in the next one.
