We had an exciting weekend in Delhi at the American Embassy School’s Super Saturday. Each year MPA looks forward to facing off against AES in basketball and soccer. It was a good showing for MPA this year; we came home with 5 wins and 3 losses. There were many exciting games, including the girls basketball win over the AES Varsity Team and the riveting finale when the boys basketball team narrowly lost in overtime to the AES Varsity Team. The cheering in that game reached a fever pitch unlike anything the Embassy had ever seen before. It was a thrill for all present. MPA left the American Embassy School feeling elated; happy to have done so well during this year’s matches. We look forward to seeing them again next year.
