High School Soccer Championships
The Prem High School Girl’s successfully defended their
CMAC soccer championship in a thrilling shoot-out with CMIS. Throughout the
day, after a victory over APIS and a loss to Lanna, the girls defeated a
very strong Grace team in the first round of the playoffs. In the final,
Prem came back in the second half against a talented CMIS forcing a
shoot-out and ended up as CMAC champions.
Coach Gregg Kerr would like to thank fellow coach Miranda
Rose for the combined coaching effort and credits the girls with outstanding
team play and sportsmanship throughout the season.
The Prem High School Boys team surprised many people in CMAC this year
finishing in third place overall. To get there, they drew with NIS, defeated
Grace - coming from behind in both contests. In the playoffs, they lost
narrowly to eventual champions APIS and defeated NIS in a shoot-out to
clinch third place. High goal scorer for the team throughout the day was
Patrick. Coach Terry Kegel credits his team for their hard work and
dedication throughout the season.
School boys team came 3rd but the mood of everybody was number 1
middle school and high school teams after an end of season scrimmage.

Chiangmai’s Own Tiger Woods?
Prem Student Wins Chiang Mai Schools Golf Tournament
Two weeks ago Nont Panayanggool walked away with a gold
medal in the Age 8 and Under category of the Chiang Mai Schools Golf
Tournament at the Chiangmai-Lamphun Country Club. Nont represented Prem
International School, where he’s a quiet but active third grader. Nont’s
national rating is now 9th in Thailand for the Boys 8 and Under category.
Panayanggool Gold Medal winner in the Under 8 years Golf competition
Nont has worked hard for his success; he practices three
times a week at Sansai driving range and has played since he was three years
old, or just big enough to hold a club. In 2001 he represented Thailand’s
Northern Region in the Asia Pacific Junior Golf Open 2001 at the Rose Garden
Country Club, Nakornpatorn where he was the youngest golfer in the
tournament. But despite all of this, Nont is still just a kid who goes out
on the golf course to have a good time. “I like playing golf with my
father,” Nont explained. “It’s a lot of fun,” he added.
While other children may idolize tennis phenomenon Srichaphan, Nont’s
hero is Spanish golf champion Sergio Garcia, who also began golfing at age
three. For Nont, golf will be both hard work and a dream to strive towards.
Nont competes this coming month in the Thai Junior Golf Promotion Club
Tournament, Northern Region.

Tony shoots top scores at Half Moon
Machine Gun Gary second, but almost drowns
It was another excellent night at ‘The Half Moon’
with a fantastic turnout. All games were played with good spirit and some
superb pool was played by all.
to R) Champion Tony, second placed “Machine Gun Gary” and third placed
Ben with Toy in front.
There were a few surprises with local favorites Tung,
Paul, Steve, Jurgen, Guy and Doug bowing out in the early stages. Ron put up
a brave fight but Tony proved to be too strong on the night and no-one could
deny him his first winner’s trophy. It looked good initially for Machine
Gun Gary but Tony and a degree of alcohol may have got the better of him.
To prove everybody wrong and to give everybody time to practice, the next
competition will be held Saturday January 3, 2004.
