On Tuesday, Shanghai American School hosted an event called Tuesday Night Lights.
The first of its kind, SAS chose to host Tuesday Night Lights instead of the usual Friday Night Lights because there is no school on Friday. Just like Friday Night Lights, Tuesday Night Lights was a chance for SAS students and staff to show school spirit by cheering on SAS’ team at a home game against a rival international school. In yesterday’s game, SAS’ varsity baseball team played against Concordia from 3 to 6.
SAS crushed Concordia, beating them 22 to 4. “The game was too easy,” claims sophomore pitcher Andrew Chang. “Not only did we play well, but Concordia needs better practice. Honestly, the players from Concordia admit that it was an embarrassment. The entire [SAS] team got bored…I really have nothing else to say.”
Although travel day for the sporting event APAC is fast approaching, Tuesday Night Lights is not the last baseball game before APAC. SAS’ varsity baseball team has a game tomorrow against the staff before having their final game on Saturday against Puxi. Next Wednesday, all season 1 travel teams leave for APAC (with the exception of Rugby, which SAS is hosting this year). This year, the APAC baseball team will go to the city of Manila.
