Final day of National Athletic Tournament rained out

The final day of the National Athletic Tournament was rained out today.  Since the final four teams from the tournament could not decided, no champions were declared.  That unfortunately means Konan's hope for a "triple crown" gets washed away as well (they could have become just the third high school, behind Minoshima in 1979 and Yokohama in 1998).

No “real” winners at National Athletic Tournament because of rain

According to the National Athletic Tournament organizers, there are no rain-dates available for the tournament, meaning games that are rained out, simply get canceled and any team not eliminated becomes a champions.

As of now, only three games have been played since tournament games were rained out both yesterday and today.  That means there will be no semifinals or finals games and there will be a total 4 schools that can end up "champions" of the tournament.
