男女テニス部頑張ってます! / Tennis Success!!

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great day! It’s been 1 month since I got back to U.S. I’ve been super busy while at the same time having so much fun with my activities. I am taking 3 classes, teaching 2 classes, doing research, and most importantly taking the lead as head coach for the Pride men’s and women’s tennis team at Springfield College. I try to make a balance to keep all the staff up. I am so pleased to do what I have been doing since the beginning of this semester.

非常に忙しい1ヶ月でしたが、充実した日々を過ごせました。クラスを取ること、クラスを教えること、研究すること、男女の監督、テニス選手の勧誘とすべてのバランスを取るのが難しいですが、なんとか乗り切りました。今までで一番充実した1ヶ月かもしれません。

It’s been such a wonderful month when looking back what was going on. The News Paper about  myself for being the head tennis coach was nicely written.The Announcement on the first career win as head coach was also nicely done by the Sports Communication Department. Teaching Japanese at Mount Holyoke College has given me new perspective of what Japanese language really is. Teaching Japanese really makes me believe that Japanese is one of the hardest language to learn, and I feel that learning English is not so difficult if compared with learning Japanese. Lastly, yes,  statistics (one of my classes) is difficult …

ニュースペーパーで自分が監督になったことを発表してもらったり、監督になって初めての勝利などデパートメントが非常に手助けしてくれました。また、日本語を教えることで、非常に日本語の難しさに痛感しています。日本語を勉強している方は本当に尊敬に値します。ひらがな、カタカナ、漢字に複雑な文法と困りますね。Hiro_1260_copy 14126_050Even though the women’s team had a very rough start, we’ve started winning and have continued moving forward to make the NEWMAC conference championship this year. Recent matches we’ve had were against WNEU (9-0), Emerson College (9-0), Clark College (8-1), Nichols College (0-9), and Smith College (8-1). One of my athletes Rachel Litchfield was selected for the Maroon Club Female Student Athletes of the week. This means that she was awarded for the best athlete of the week, which was amazing.

最初は非常に難しいスタートでしたが、最近の試合は生徒が非常によくやってくれています。5試合中、4勝1敗と素晴らしい試合でした。テニス部の成功の定義は勝つことではなく、常に自分のベストを出せるかどうかですが、やはり勝つことは嬉しいことでもあり、間違いなく選手たちの自信の元となってくれると思います。 Litchfield_MaroonClub 14180_163 We are ready to compete against Suffolk College tomorrow. Men’s team will have a match this week against WNEU (10/3) as our HOME match at 4 pm. Please come and support us!

女子の試合が明日、男子が明後日と忙しい日々は続きますが、準備は十分に出来ていると思うので選手を見るのが楽しみです。 10383915_728065997268686_5011375176817668757_n Hope you enjoyed this blog! -Hiro
