Over the past 5 years, our basketball team has been continously achieving sporting excellence. And they continue to impress!
This series of successes started in 2012. In that year, the IGS Group basketball team played in 2 championships. They reached the quarter finals in the French Universities Championships but most importantly, they won the « Grandes Écoles »* Championship in Paris area!
The following year, in 2013, they earned an impressive third place in the « Grandes Écoles » championships.
2014 was also a year of success and progress: in the Paris and Lyon « Grandes Écoles » championships, the IGS team won the silver and bronze medals. The folowing year, in 2015, was yet another year of success as they kept their reputation in Lyon’s competition and won the third place again.
This excitment and accomplishment escalated once again in 2016 as they won the « Grandes Écoles » championship!
2017 has also been a year of success for our team. They won the championship in Paris’ competition and maintained a strong third place in Rennes.
These continous accomplishments are even more impressive because the team members come from the diverse schools of the IGS Groups. They do not see each other on a daily basis and in many cases only see each other from the basketball court. Given the fact that turnover is high as players come and go, building team spirit and consistent performance is a big challenge.
We are so proud of all they have achieved and hope that they kep bringing home the cups!
