To all Leopards,

It has certainly been a great sporting year here at DAA, and it was great to be able to return to school sport. All student athletes and coaches were amazing. Your enthusiasm and dedication is definitely appreciated by the Athletics and Activities Department.

LEOPARDS SPORTS WEEKEND

The first International School competition for the Leopards since February 2020 took place the weekend of April 15-16. Teams participated in Baseball, Badminton, Softball, Track and Field. It was great to be able to return to play with some of our MESAC community. Lots of great memories were made, and we look forward to further events like these in the future that will help complement our program.

We look forward to the school year 2022-2023 where MESAC and our other sporting associations make a full return.
