Comments by manager and players

Manager Megumi Kitta

"Anyway, we are relieved. We felt difficulty of pattern that was high school student including poor physical condition of player and it was uneasy start, but adapted day by day. We aimed at play to become sample of each Asian country, but there was not all what we demanded. We aimed at sample and behavior that we are used to, but dugout work of India was splendid thing, and there is that we must learn still more a lot. Myself make use of this experience, too and want to make step-up"

The Harue Yoshii captain (Riseisha)

It "was aim today that it was said to do tight game in all the members from first inning aloud. As even defense was able to speak well, it was good that we could get a score from first inning. There was usually sense of incongruity in team first as it was enemy, but while they spent, good place and characteristic of friend knew, and both baseball and everyday life were fun. We will think that there are many players who continue playing baseball in future. Meeting just challenged in high school students, but thinks that we can try hard each other so that it is chosen in full national team as we want to play together again"

Nozomi Abe (Fukuchiyama Seibi)

"It faced meeting with the goal of championship, but severe game was several games, or there was, and it was really big to have come by clean score championship in that. Indian player enjoyed warm-up and thought that such a place must learn. As it was not player who could contribute by extra-base hit, meeting was just keeping that we did higher than role given even certain attack that we played by defense in mind. We think that we might do it to a minimum"
