The 2019, 29th Annual, AIS-Salzburg Boys & Girls Basketball Jamboree was another success despite our teams falling short of their Jamboree goals.
Given the lack of practical experience, our boys team were the heavy underdogs going into the event. Despite their disadvantage, the boys fought hard and did not give up throughout the tournament, finishing in last place.
Our girls team had higher expectations going into the tournament, with the starting lineup having a combined 18 years of experience playing the game, all at AIS-Salzburg. Unfortunately, the girls were not able to re-gain their form which helped them bring home second place at the DVAC Varsity Girls Basketball Tournament a month earlier. Playing with only 6 players, the girls looked fatigued in the semi-final against a scrappy QSI-Bratislava team whom they narrowly beat the day before.
Congratulations the Townshend International School who in their first Jamboree managed to win the boys championship. Also congratulations to the British International School of Bratislava who won their first ever girls side of Jamboree!
