Seiritsu's soccer team narrowly miss out on National spot

On Saturday November 11, 􂤁􀅒[􏿿majority of Seiritsu school students assembled at Komazawa Daigaku grounds in order to cheer on the senior soccer team as they entered the final of the Tokyo block in the National High Schools Soccer Championship qualifications.

Winning the tournament would book them a place in the 96th National High Schools Championship, where champions from all 47 prefectures of Japan compete to be the best! The tournament takes place from December 30th to January 8th, and is televised across the country. Many athletes that perform well in the tournament are scouted for professional teams, so this is a massive opportunity for all entrants!

Seiritsu's opponents were Kanto Daiichi High School, who were looking to enter the nationals for the second year in a row.

Sadly, despite a thrilling game and vociferous support from all students, the result was a 1-0 loss to Kanto Daiichi.

This means that the current third years will now 'retire' to prepare for university entrance exams and their future prospects.

I'm sure the first and second year athletes will use the frustration of getting so close as fuel for improvement, and will be back better than ever next year!

To even get to the qualifying finals in the Tokyo block is a significant achievement, and the boys should be proud of their accomplishments.

Seiritsu Gakuen is currently accepting enquiries from high-performing soccer athletes who want to make the grade in Japan and graduate in our three-year program. If you think you have what it takes to be an athlete student in Tokyo, please contact us at international@seiritsu-int.com.
