Our Season 3 teams rose to the occasion at Season 3 IASAS Championship events in Jakarta, Bangkok, and here in Taipei. Six out of eight teams medaled this season to run TAS sports teams' medal count to a record-breaking 16 for the year!
TAS teams had taken home the previous high of 13 medals on three separate occasions prior to golf's entry into the IASAS fold in 2013-2014, then had reached that total a fourth time in 2017-2018.
