June 22, 2013 Nagano, Japan: Obuse junior high boys volleyball team is anticipating a win at this weekend’s Hokushin (Northern Nagano District) competition. After taking first in a stunning come-from-behind victory over Sumisaka at the Kamitakai games, they are looking forward to continuing their success at Hokshin. Although a top four rank insures a trip to the prefectural games, Obuse is after the top slot. Go for it Obuse!
