Our Lady Leopards had a stellar day in the Snow Leopard's gym in the LS hosted NISSA Girls' Basketball Final 4, heating up the floor with the some tenacious hustle, fighting spirit and sizzling baskets. In our semi-final match up against Rato Bangala, the girls took an early lead and did not look back with a 33-8 win. Especially pleasing was the manner of the defensive performance, with our goals dominating the boards and forcing a number of turnovers that were capitalized on with some slick shooting and fast breaks. In the other semi-final, KISC defeated TBS to set-up what would be fascinating final between two different, but closely contested teams.
In the final, the Snow Leopards took an early lead, showing great composure with the ball, and more tough defending. However, despite having a strong lead at half-time, the girls got into some foul and injury trouble, which shifted momentum KISC's way. The girls fought hard, but eventually went down 32-27. It was a great learning experience for our Snow Leopards, who will no doubt learn from the experience and come back stronger.
Lincoln's Niharika Tuladhar and Shreetika Singh headed off to Windsor, Canada this weekend for the FINA World Swimming Championships! They will be joined by recent LS graduate, Sofia Shah, meaning that all three female swimmers representing Nepal are Lincoln Snow Leopards! Quite a feat for our school in the foothills of the Himalayas. Niharika will be competing in the 50 and 100 breaststroke events, in which she holds national records for Nepal. Shreetika and Sofia will both be swimming the 50, 100 and 200 meter freestyle events. We will keep you posted on how they do at the championships. Good luck girls!

Our Lincoln Boys' Soccer team put on a complete performance against The British School at the Buddhi Bikas Mandal ground in Lagankhel on Friday, emerging as 2-0 winners. The boys worked hard, showed good tactical awareness and took the lead in the first half through a towering header. Lincoln continued to dominate in the 2nd half and were rarely tested in defense with the 2nd goal settling proceedings.
At the same time, our all-conquering Girls' Volleyball team hosted the TBS girls in the Lincoln gym for some friendly games. Our Lincoln girls won in straight sets (3-0) showing that despite settling into basketball season, their skills and teamwork are very much still intact.

LEMUN: Day 1
After a short historical tour in the morning, students took part in Day 1 of LEMUN. After talking to all the students, it sounds like everyone was able to take an active role in their committees, with one of them even being main submitter of a resolution. After the conference ended for the day, we walked around the main square and had a nice dinner. Overall, it's been a great trip and students were eager to return for Day 2. The second day will be a full day of lobbying and debating, followed by a late night LEMUN dance. For lots of pictures and information, checkout their blog page at:

The finishing touches are now being placed on Lincoln's new multi-purpose court. Although the heavy monsoon rains delayed the project, the new surface appears to have been worth the wait. Students of all ages are able to enjoy the surface during breaks, lunch, after-school and during SAISA practices. The court has association approved surfaces and lines for basketball, tennis and volleyball. We look forward to unveiling the court on Thursday, November 17 when our Girls' Basketball team take on GEMS at 4.00 pm. Come out and support your Snow Leopards!
Our Lincoln School Varsity Boys' Soccer team enjoyed a great day out in the sun on Sunday against KISC at the Buddhi Bikas Mandal ground. Despite it being our first game of the season, the boys began brightly, showing their attacking intent with an aggressive high pressing game. The boys' athleticism, speed and desire proved too much for KISC, who found themselves two goals down at half-time. However, it was the 2nd half when the floodgates really opened and our Snow Leopards found their flow with some great team play and stunning solo efforts. All players in the match-day squad contributed to a great team effort by both keeping a clean sheet and scoring 10 excellent goals. Although there will be sterner tests to follow for our Snow Leopards, the signs are that this group of boys can really develop into an outstanding team. We play our 2nd game of the season against Rato Bangala on November 19th, after UN Day.
