The “Under 9” Ice Hockey Tohoku Region Tournament was held on January 26th and 27th at Morioka City . Any child from 5 years-old up to 3rd grade was able to participate in this tournament. Two teams were from Iwate Prefecture , one team was from Fukushima Prefecture , another team was from Akita Prefecture and the Misawa Jr. Ice Hockey Club is from Aomori Prefecture . The Misawa Jr. Ice Hockey Club members had two games in two days and spent the night in Morioka City . They put forth a great effort and did their best in this competition. And for that they got FIRST PLACE ! They did really great job playing together with their teammates. I hope they do not to forget that moment and feeling and practice hard every day for the next year!
