The Nagas has a busy weekend competing with schools from Vietnam, Thailand and one other Cambodian school.

The boys had both our A and B's team in the tournament, which made things especially enjoyable when they played each other. The B team worked so hard all weekend and kept playing thier best against much older and more experienced opponents. The boys ended the weekend in 6th place, and Yuth Tha was named all tournament athlete for the team.
