The Sabers middle school girls volleyball team, led by Coach Yamamoto and Coach Udy, travel to Marist Brothers International School in Suma, Kobe, October 3-4, where they will play in the season-ending WJAA tournament. The Sabers A team, with only one loss on the season, plans to retain its WJAA title from last year. The Sabers B team will compete in the B division, also hoping to win a WJAA championship.
On Thursday, September 4, 2014, Mr. Gilson Alves Bernardo, head coach of the Suntory men's professional volleyball team and former professional volleyball player in Brazil and Japan (and father of 2 OIS students), visited
the MS girls volleyball practice in the Sabers gym. In little time, Coach Bernardo had the 50 Sabers girls working on teamwork and individual skills. It was a great opportunity to have a professional coach on campus.
Thank you, Coach Bernardo.
