national high school baseball championship

Kounan High School won its national high school baseball championship title on August 21th. It is the first time for the team representing Okinawa Prefecture to win this summer championship.

Okinawa was under American control until 1972 after World War Ⅱ. Syuri High School as the team representing Okinawa made its first appearance in the championship in 1958.
Players from the losing team take soil from the field as a memento and the members of Syuri High School did it. However, they had no choice but to scatter the soil in the sea because bringing in soil from Japan went against the U.S. plant protection act.

After the championship ended, We feel that summer vacation is at an end.
