Our soft tennis team is number 1 in Japan! Wow! This morning we had a special ceremony to honour their win. They practice very hard in the hot summer, so it isn’t easy. After speeches from the captain, coach, and principal, they toured the school with their flags and medals.
If an athlete or team is the best in a country, we call them “national champions”. The champions of an entire nation. This is the first time we have been national champions in seven years. Hopefully they can win again and “defend their title” … their title being “national champions”.
Have a good week!
