Comment by ICU WINDS representative of the men's team, Riki Yamato (3rd year student)
We have been training hard for the past year in order to win first place in the Kanto Regional, but to our chagrin, we ended up in the fifth place. However, we have two more weeks until the finals, so we are practicing hard to fight our way to a higher rank in the finals. We appreciate your support!
Comment by ICU WINDS representative of the women's team, Hanae Oda (3rd year studnet)
We were able to earn a place in the finals, which was one of our important objectives. Proceeding to the finals, however, is not our goal. We will focus our minds on winning as many games as possible and achieve the highest rank ever in our history. We'll spend the remaining two weeks preparing for that end. Please support us in the finals too.
