U16 Girls A Badminton

Posted by cobrasports

The U16 A badminton team had a strong start to the season. Playing against the highly rated Harrow International School, they confidently defeated them in the first 3 games for a score of 3-0. The girls worked cohesively as a team supporting and encouraging each other to do well, and are looking forward to playing other schools in the coming weeks.

U16 Girls B Badminton

The first match of the season was held at HKIS. It was an exciting experience for many of our players as it was their first badminton competition. We were feeling a bit disappointed after our first loss against HKIS, however, our spirits were eventually brought up after a successful result of our second game against CDNIS. Despite it being their first time participating in badminton competitions, Shreeya Shrimali and Harshita Adury were able to win their doubles game which won us victory in the 4th game and the match against CDNIS.

U12 Boys Badminton

It was an unexpected start to the season for the U12 boys badminton. Our first match was cancelled and we won our second match due to a forfeit by CDNIS because of absent players. Nonetheless, we played a friendly game against the players who were available. With 2 experienced players from last year’s team and 6 newcomers, it was wonderful to see the boys working together and supporting each other. Timothy Wai, Pratish Vyas and Anakin Chan showed their skills when they played singles matches. The newer players enjoyed playing doubles, getting a feel for the competition. We are looking forward to a fun season ahead.

U14 Boys Badminton

The U14 boys badminton team got of to a tough start of the season losing 3-1 to Harrow. Although we all fought hard with some close calls to victory, our only point for us came from the first doubles combination of HyunMin Kim and Aaditya Kumar. But at the end of the day, the opposing team Harrow were just too strong. In the second game despite a valiant effort from the whole team we ended up losing 3-0 to YCIS as well, with our closest score being 21-18 from our first doubles game played by HyunMin Kim and Aaditya.

U12 Girls Badminton

Led by the calmness and experience of captain Coraline, the team grew in confidence throughout their first outing of the season. First up, our Cobras comfortably won 3 of the first 4 games against ISF with a couple of close games. Against ICS it went down to the line with both teams having 2 wins leading into the 5th game. Roxanne held fast for the team, winning the final game 21:10 to achieve DC’s second win for the evening.

U14 Netball

The Cobras started the season with a substantive win over the Kowloon Warriors, 31-5. The Cobras had a definite height advantage and played a strong first half. While the Warriors may not have been able to get past the Cobras defence in the goal circle, they demonstrated the effectiveness of precise, short passing against taller players in the second half. Players of note included our main goal shooters, Sophie and Casey, who both shot with precision, and Charlotte for her movement and passing down court.

U12 Red Netball

Well done U12 Cobra Red Netball Team for your efforts on Sunday 17 February 2019. Unfortunately, due to the Hong Kong Marathon our netball buses had arrived late. This means that our team had to forfeit. We were however able to play a half game against the Hawks (scores did not count). It was really pleasing to see how mature and sensible our players were arriving late and getting onto the courts as quickly as they could. All players showed a terrific amount of zest and enthusiasm and it was very exciting for everyone to have all 10 players together on the court for the first time. Sophie Devlin-Leitch and Lin Vernados were our players of the game. Well done all girls for showing great spirit and a Love of Netball.

Cross Country

Posted by cobrasports

The DC Cobra cross country team competed in the ISSFHK Championships just before Chinese New Year. There were some stand-out performances across the various divisions, with many students running personal bests. A special mention, however, needs to go to the DC U12 Girls Team, who came second in their division. This team consisted of Lisa Trimingham, Karlee Dean, Amaya Mantel, Bella Devlin-Leitch, Alessia Smith, Elaine Wang, Amara Prasad and Aleena Naqvi.
