Senior sports round up: SEASAC's 'Super' 20th anniversary year
The 2015/2016 academic year marked the 20th Anniversary of the South East Asia Student Activities Conference (SEASAC) and a year of significant athletic achievement for both the Dover Phoenix and East Dragons teams. UWCSEA is a founding member of SEASAC, and each year senior teams from both campuses compete in regional SEASAC sport championship tournaments alongside teams from 11 other international schools in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and Thailand. In addition, students from the College participate in SEASAC Model United Nations and Arts Festivals.
As part of the anniversary year, ‘Super SEASAC’ sports tournaments were hosted this year, which brought together multiple championships in a single weekend at a host school. Over the course of the year, UWCSEA hosted three Super SEASAC tournaments including Division 2 Football and Volleyball in Season 1, Division 2 Basketball and Tennis in Season 2 and Division 1 Badminton and Softball in Season 3, as well as Division 1 Gymnastics.
Overall, it was the most successful year in SEASAC to date for the East Dragons and the most successful in recent times for the Dover Phoenix. Most importantly however, we celebrate the students’ dedication, teamwork, collaboration and resilience as they strive to do their best and enjoy themselves through sport.
