League of Champions Week 1 Highlights

Week one of the League of Champions kicked off before the September holiday break and propelled our student-athletes back into the spotlight. As any bystander or Zoom bomber would attest, they did not disappoint! The Eagle Rays flaunted their dry land ability against a fiesty, upstart boys volleyball team. The boys football program flaunted their midseason fitness and form, but was it enough to overcome the teamwork and resilience of the girls volleyball team? Skill and spirit sparkled off Nido's dazzling dancers, but did the highly-disciplined, steely-eyed, girls football team prove they would not be blinded by the bright lights?

Sweat, grit, and perseverance punctuated the week one matches between Nido teams, but the overall vibe was one of camaraderie, fun, and laughter. Teams engaged in tests of fitness, skills challenges, and a highlight-worthy trick shot to determine the game winner in their ongoing quest to lift the cup in this season's Nido League of Champions!

You can keep up with all the highlights and league standings on the school's website: https://www.nido.cl/athletics/league.

Good luck to all our teams, and as always, GO EAGLES!
