Toa Payoh Sports Hall, Friday, April 6, 2018 — Nanyang Girls’ High School’s Wushu team won the 2018 B Division title again when the judges announced the girls’ score of 8.80 on the final day of National Schools Wushu Championship — which comprised of the teamwork-oriented Group Quanshu and Weapon events.

This meant that the school will be taking home the championship trophies once again for both the B and C divisions, for the third year running.

The two final day events required the ability of six teammates to do the moves, along with coordination and precision in making themselves look uniform to the beat of a chosen music track, and the girls did just that to take home the trophies on offer.

They were followed by Chung Cheng High School (Main) and Dunman High School in the B Division girls’. Chung Cheng (Main) and Ngee Ann Secondary School came in second and third respectively in the C Division girls’. The A girls’ championship trophy was once again given to Hwa Chong. Meridian and Victoria took home the silver and the bronze respectively.

In the boys’ category, Victoria Junior College continued their dominance and defended their A Division Boys’ title, leaving Hwa Chong Institution in second and Meridian Junior College in third.

For Victoria School, it was a good outing for the school’s wushu team as they also bagged the B Division boys’ title under their belt.

“It has been awhile since we won the (B Division) title,” said Victoria School’s captain, Ong Pang Jan. Vice captains Regan Teh and Ryan Tan added that close to half of the team members overcame injuries.

Overall, they added that they were very happy to have placed ahead of rival and friend, Hwa Chong Institution.

For the C division boys’, Hwa Chong Institution clinched first place while Anderson Secondary took home the silver, improving from their bronze last year. Victoria School rounded up the top three for the C Division Boys.

Hwa Chong Institution’s A Division teams remarkably dominated the Quanshu and Weapon events. The A boys’ scored an 8.90 for the Group Quanshu, and 8.93 for the Group Weapon. Victoria Junior College was not far behind when they took both silvers with 8.81 for both events. Hwa Chong’s A girls’ team likewise walked home with first positions in both events, gaining an 8.73 for the Group Quanshu ahead of Meridian Junior College’s 8.66, and 8.78 for the Group Weapon above River Valley High School’s 8.71.
