TAS Rivalry

Basketball season just started. This past weekend, we traveled to TAS to continue our long (and sometimes lost) competition with the school that gives us the best peer-to-peer games on the island. The girls split their two games over the weekend winning 41-21 against Shanghai American School (SAS) and dropping a tight game against TAS 30-33. The guys played hard and came out with a win against SAS 65-45 and a loss versus TAS 46-56. We have been privileged in the last couple of years to renew weekend games with TAS in volleyball, basketball and girls’ soccer. We enjoy good relationships with their coaches and find the competition great in preparing us for our end-of-season tournaments.  Although Christmas tourneys in Hong Kong are over, we still travel each February to play in the Association of Christian Schools Conference. This year, we are hosting the boys’ tournament while the girls travel to ICS Hong Kong to play. With live-streaming, these events have become something one can enjoy whether at the tournament or not.

 

ACSC Conference

Morrison is in its second year of a new conference of seven schools called ACSC (Asian Christian Schools Conference).  After 10 tournaments it is quite even with Morrison and Faith Academy (Philippines) tying with the most championships. The great thing about it is that the schools not only compete against each other in what has proven to be a highly competitive conference, but they serve on a mission outreach experience together each tournament.  Did you know that Don Dwight (’74) has been an instrumental person in developing this quality conference?
