The TAS varsity rugby team emerged with a 2-3 finish from a challenging 2019 IASAS Rugby Exchange featuring matchups with all five IASAS rival schools on the Tigers’ home turf.
The Tigers opened the exchange on Friday afternoon with 46-0 loss to the International School Manila Bearcats, who went on to defeat the other four conference rivals by a combined score of 148-25. TAS rebounded to earn a 43-0 victory over Jakarta Intercultural School on Friday evening. TAS kicked off the Saturday action with a hard-fought 15-12 victory over International School Bangkok in a spirited seesaw affair.
After two days of intense competition the Tigers—undermanned like much of the field—dropped their final two matches, first to Singapore American School by the score of 22-5 then 22-0 to the International School of Kuala Lumpur, whose only loss of the weekend came against the dominant side from Manila.
The varsity boys basketball team went 3-0 with two wins over Shanghai American School Puxi and the varsity girls basketball team went 2-1 at the TAS Basketball Exchange.
