Tokyo is always a treat for us at IHBB, as it comes with some of the most enthusiastic young history scholars. India International School of Japan sent a remarkable twelve teams from their two campuses to compete against the likes of St. Maur, Canadian International School, Global Indian, and host International School of the Sacred Heart.
The Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions were small but well-spirited as they battled it out round-by-round. In the finals, Canadian International School used their 50 point advantage from winning the preliminaries to secure the win in the Varsity division. India International B’s undefeated status went unchanged after overcoming St. Maur’s two-person team in the Junior Varsity final.
In the middle school division, the 15-team competition was fierce. Many of India International’s students attended the 2013-2014 season’s Asian Championships in Hong Kong, and their experience against the top teams in Asia coupled with their base history knowledge propelled them into the front. Not to be outdone, Global Indian B made it into the semifinals among the three IISJ teams (C, E, and J), but were ultimately trumped by runner-up IISJ E. India International C snagged the winning title, led by Bee runner-up Neel Date.
We hope that everyone had a wonderful time, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at our next Tokyo tournament at IISJ on February 7th, 2015!
