Weekend sports wrap-up

It was a busy weekend for the Flames.  Two middle school teams participated in their season-ending tournament and the high school baseball played a home game.  

The middle school girls' softball team saw their first action on Friday.  They played in 3 tournament games against some strong competition.  Even though this was the first time many of the girls had played they were excited to take the field.  The Flames struggled to keep pace with the high-powered offenses they faced and lost all 3 of their games, but the day started and ended with smiles and good sportsmanship. On Saturday morning the Flames played a must-win game in order to continue in the tournament.  It was a good game, but the lack of experience caught up with the team and they lost their early lead.  Even though they did not win any games the team had a great experience and made many good memories. 

The middle school boys' A and B volleyball teams had high hopes for their tournament.  The A team came out strong but failed to capitalize in the early matches finishing the day with 0 wins and 2 losses.  The B team played very well but lost both of their matches in 3 sets.  Saturday started off great for both teams as they each won their first match of the tournament.  The A team had a chance to continue their winning ways but dropped a tough 3 set match to Marist to end their tournament.  The B team was able to continue their winning ways all the way to the championship match where they narrowly lost to the host Osaka Sabres.  Congratulations to all the teams for a great season. 

The baseball team hosted the Marist Bulldogs in Joyo.  It was a great day for baseball.  The Flames fought hard to the very end, narrowly losing 11-9.  The team is gearing up for their tournament later this week.

On Saturday, March 21 the middle school boys volleyball team traveled to Canadian Academy to face the Eagles.  The Flames were once again victorious winning 5 out of 6 sets.  The Flames B team came away with a tie, winning 3 sets and losing 3.  The team continues to make steady progress as the season continues.  

The high school boys baseball team traveled to Nagoya to face the Dolphins.  This was the team's frost game of the year and they showed real potential.  They won the first game of the day 7-4.  They fought hard in the second game, coming up a little short in a 7-5 loss.  I heard from the Nagoya athletic director that the Flames looked very good, which was encouraging to hear.

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, the MS boys volleyball team hosted the MBIS Bulldogs.  It was an exciting afternoon of volleyball.  It was wonderful to see so many parents and siblings come and watch the matches.  Thank you for supporting the team.  

The Flames A team started out strong against the Bulldogs winning the first set 25-19.  The strong play continued into the second set as the Flames downed the Bulldogs 25-16.  The third set was the most exciting of the day the Flames had two chances to win the set, but the Bulldogs had other ideas and rallied to win 27-25.  In the end, the Flames were victorious 2 sets to 1.  

The Flames B team looked good against the Bulldogs B team.  The Flames won in straight sets 25-14, 25-16, and 25-19.  The boys worked well together and made some really nice plays along the way.  

All other teams were off this past weekend.
