Season 1 saw JIS hosting both X-Country and Volleyball while TAS hosted soccer. The heavy rains from a typhoon the week before the tournament in Taipei forced the entire tournament to be played on the TAS pitch instead of running games on two sites. This made for long days for the teams but they were good days. The Volleyball tournament was dedicated to a former JIS teacher and coach, Mrs. Joy Armstrong, who passed away recently. Mrs. Armstrong was the coach of the girls’ teams from 1978 – 1988 and again from 1992 – 1998, with a only a couple of years off in those periods during which she taught in Kenya. She and her husband Rob were involved with the start of the IASAS program in 1982 and it was fitting that Mrs. Armstrong was remembered for all her time spent helping students and athletes over the years. Both X-Country races started and finished on the resurfaced track at JIS under bright sunny skies. The races went off without a hitch and were won in very fast times.
