Local judo clubs taste provincial success
The Aberdeen and Kamloops judo clubs earned plenty of hardware at the Judo B.C. Youth Championships, which were held at the Tournament Capital Centre on Saturday, March 3.
Five Aberdeen Judo Club members earned medals in their respective divisions.
Matthew Hanks, competing in the under-11 division, and brother Geoffrey, competing in the under-15 age group, won gold medals.
The brothers' elder sister, Megan, had no competition in her under-17 age group, so she moved up to the under-20 division and won bronze.
Andrew Iadarola, a first-degree black belt, placed second in the under-20 division, while under-15 judoka Drew Ramsay won bronze.
Four Kamloops Judo Club members won medals at provincials.
Halo Haughton won gold competing in the under-11 division, while older brother Ben Haughton won silver in the under-15 category.
Chantell Nagy, competing in the under-15 division, won silver, while Zander Landygo, competing in the under-11 division, won bronze.
