The Shizuoka Hiryu high team aims for the first yusho - last year they lost to Tootori Johoku in the semifinal. Last year's ace Suzuki has joined Fujishima-beya for Hatsu, but still sometimes comes to train with his kohai at the school with the impressive decoration of a Kitanoumi yusho portrait.

The usual kirokukensaku site is down ATM, sumorenmei has nothing from high schol, but the page with the pairings updates and brings the results https://zutto-sports.com/inter-high2019-sumo

Inhai TV broadcasts all events live, but I haven't found videos yet - we have to rely on the usual sites.

Recording is no problem: youtube-dl --hls-use-mpegts "https://inhightv.sportsbull.jp/sports/top?sports=12"

I could only get a bit from the team prelims so far, but Tottori's Dawaaninji is really impressive (200cm, 165kg) - he lost one in the first round though, as did Asahigaoka's Munkh-kun  - to Saitama Sakae's Tebakari. Shizuoka Kibogaoka has 2 foreigners at the start,  one is 1-2, Bilguun is 2-1 - also a first round loss. Tottori and Kibogaoka have 1 foreigner in the team so far - Kibogaoka picked the wrong one, 1-2 Myanganbayar. The only other with a bit of katakana is George Matsunaga from Chiba Takudai high - 3-0 - a haafu maybe?

Edit: just in the team - Kanazawa Mukainooka has a Christopher-kun

The team prelim 2nd & 3rd round has disappeared from the TV schedule. Inhai TV lists the 1st and 2nd round bouts for the individuals final tournament https://inhightv.sportsbull.jp/sports/lists?sports=12&gender=1&event=single

Bilguun is already in the best 64, Munk-kun, Dawaaninji, Tottori's Mukainakano and Saitama's Naya (4th son) have to win in the 1st round to get there. Munk-kun would meet Hanada next, the new Asahigaoka Mongolian duo won't do as good as the last one.

But they broadcast it anyway. I had hoped for that and made a task with the 9a.m. the competition itself was scheduled to begin, with a .bat file to record during the night. The individual final tournament should have started by now, but is late a bit.

Hiryu's Okuwa is high school yokozuna - I haven't got most of the names, the only thing the hall announcer girl was pronouncing properly was the term "high school" in each athlete's presentation. Buntoku's Kusano is runner-up

Dawaaninji lost in the qf, Hanada in the sf, as did Hanaoka from Buntoku.

The final Okuwa-Kusano

origin_1.jpg


Naya failed in the best 32, one other from Saitama Sakae made it only to the best 16. 2 from Tottori made it to the qf. Mukainakano also ended in the best 16. But with only 1 loss in the team prelims, Saitama still looks the favorite. The team best 32 tournament pairings and all results so far are on that same page now: https://zutto-sports.com/inter-high2019-sumo

Funny that the individuals were also announced as "Now the best 32 tournament starts", when in fact the 1 first round to get to the best 64 started, and then the 2nd round to at last get to that best 32 tournament. Munkh-kun as expected didn't make it and was stopped by Hanada - Dawaaninji was the only foreigner in the best 32. George Matsunaga also made it to the 1st round there - he looks haafu.

Kumamoto Buntoku high won the yusho - their first was 21 years ago. They beat Tottori Johoku 3-2  in the final. Saitama wasn't even in the qf - Buntoku eliminated them in the first round 4-1, then Chiba Takudai Koryo, Hiryu in the qf. 3rd were Kanazawa Gakuin and Kanagawa Mukainoka. Buntoku had the 2nd and a 3rd place in the individuals.

High school yokozuna Okuwa - also 21 years since the winner was from Shizuoka: now Sagatsukasa

The Kumamoto duo of Kusano and Hanaoka has won Wanpaku, Hakuho Cup, National Middle School Student Championships together. Finally, they deliver the Inter-High. What a great story.

Team Final (featuring an unsportsmanlike shove and a call that the Tottori Johoku team and coach did not like at all)

Six years ago, Kumamoto were heavy favourites going into their national club final against Aomori, but Kusano lost against Koseki on their way to losing 3-2.

Today, Kusano and Koseki opened the team final, with Koseki’s Tottori Johoku being the favourites. This time, the final score was also 3-2, but to Kusano’s Buntoku, so I guess it was payback for Kusano?

Speaking of, I’m disappointed that Kusano couldn’t claim the individual title, as he is easily the best in his year group. The same thing happened three years ago, but at least he won the tournament that mattered the most. Congrats to, I’m assuming, 大桑 元揮 (Okuwa Motoki)?

One thing I learnt from the team final was how violent Tottori’s Dawaninji’s sumo has now become. He now uses his height and long reach to slap the life out of his opponent. Ouch.

That fourth bout in the team final was contentious to say the least. Did Kumamoto’s right leg touch before Tottori’s right arm? Should a torinaoshi have been called?

The final between Okuwa and Kusano. Credit to Okuwa for timing that move to perfection.

Looked to me like it should've been a torinaoshi. The Tottori side was understandably upset.

I wish sumo were appealing (especially monetary) enough to draw more talents from this pool.
