Outstanding achievements recognized at Prem Sports Banquet

David Michaels

Prem Tinsulanonda International School held its annual Sports Banquet to honor students who participated in various sports teams throughout the year.

Prem’s coaches for the 2004-2005 school year presented awards to their players at the Sports Banquet.

The ceremony began with a slide show of photographs, and one student representative from each team spoke about their season - reveling in memories, recounting humorous events, and recalling moments of triumph.

Departing Coach Janet Powell (left) and her Under 20 Girls Basketball team have been CMAC champions for three years as well as the runners-up in the 2005 National Basketball Tournament.

For each sport (including both genders and all age-groups in the Senior School), the coaches presented three awards: Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player, and the Coach’s Award. The latter often went to an athlete with commitment, sportsmanship, exceptional enthusiasm, or to a person who may have contributed to the team in a more unquantifiable way.

Vishal, who won a Most Improved Player award for athletics, and Kien, who earned the same for soccer as well as a Coach’s Award for Futsal, race around the track at this year’s CMAC Athletics Meet.

Students who received awards were those who made an important difference to their team. Their coaches, teammates, and spectators could all appreciate this difference, and the team was better for it.

At the end of the evening, everyone bid their farewells to Janet Powell, who is leaving at the end of this term and has run the sports program at Prem since the inception of the school four years ago. She established an excellent physical education program encompassing an extensive number of sports and has been instrumental in bringing the school up to a competitive athletic level. Janet will be missed immensely as Prem’s sports program enters a new phase in the coming years.

Honda Trial Thailand Championship 2005 in Chiang Mai

The “Honda Trial Thailand Championship 2005” took place at the courtyard in front of Saha Panich Chiang Mai, on May 28, organized by the Federation of Motor Sport Clubs of Thailand (FMSCT), and joined by 25 outdoor trial riders. It was the third time this was supported by A.P. Honda, Niyom Panich and Sithipol 1919.

Challenging obstacles had to be overcome.

There were events for the over 40’s and also for those under 16 years old, named “Golden Boys”. This group had an 11 year old boy, Panupong Piya, as a participant.

Although there were some grueling tests, only minor accidents occurred.

Sorakrit Potidhatkul, sporting commissioner of FMSCT, said that almost a hundred percent of the Trial Thailand Championship was held in Chiang Mai or in the northern region, and almost 90 participating riders were local residents, with only a few coming from different areas such as Phuket and Korat. There will be eight rounds this year, and the champion would receive a trophy presented by TV channel 7, Bangkok.
