Regional Sports Association Brings Youth Together


This past weekend hosted 185 students and coaches from 8 International Schools in South East Asia to compete in two major sports tournaments in Phnom Penh. The Mekong River International Schools Association (MRISA) hosts 6 tournaments a year around South East Asia.

Senior (age 14-18) boys and girls played in a Volleyball tournament, spending two days competing and battling for a championship metal.  The local sports powerhouse, International School of Phnom Penh (ISPP) swept both divisions, winning first in boys and girls.

Meanwhile, Junior (age 14-18) boys and girls fought for victory during the two day tournament, resulting in an exciting victory by International School of Phnom Penh (ISPP) in the boys game and a close win by the United Nations International School Hanoi (UNIS) girls over ISPP.
