News from TASIS England
Written by Noemi Polo, grade 11
All those who came on Friday, February 21 to watch TASIS win against The American School of The Hague witnessed Renée Busch breaking her older sister’s, Kristen Busch (‘08), and Josh Bett’s (’08) record for the highest career points ever scored at TASIS – and she is still going!
Keeping up the family tradition of excelling in basketball, Renée took more than 1,700 career points at TASIS: the new record for boys and girls (Josh Bett had the highest career points for males at 1,680 in 2008). Younger sister Natalie (‘15) is an avid player and Kristen ('10) held the TASIS record for the most points scored for girls, until broken by Renée. All three sisters have been on the TASIS Varsity Basketball team from 8th to 12th grades but, unfortunately, never all three at the same time, even though Kristen mentioned that playing with her two sisters would be like “icing on the cake!”
Alongside juggling busy varsity practice schedules, Natalie and Renée are part of the Sevenoaks Suns (coached by TASIS Varsity Basketball coach and father, Len Busch), as well as England’s national women’s team! According to the National England Basketball website, Renée is “one of England’s and GB’s promising point guards of the future”, something not hard to believe when you see her and her sisters play on the court.
