A couple more medals were added to the Portage Judo Club’s collection.
Fighters from Portage la Prairie returned from the Sask Open Judoka Tournament in Regina this weekend with some hardware.
Portage Judo Club sent eight fighters and came back with two medals. Wade Campbell and Ethan Garrioch both competed in the Senior Novice U-81kg division and brought back silver and bronze medals respectively.
Connor Maryniuk and Ryder Maryniuk competed in the U-14 divisions for the first time in their young careers and ran into older and more experienced fighters where neither were able to come out of their round robin divisions to compete for medals.
Troy Doherty and Garrioch both competed in the U-18 division on Saturday where they ran into large very stiff competition and neither were able to medal.
Chysom Scott competed on Saturday in the Senior Masters Division and then again on Sunday in the Senior Men Advanced open weight division where he was successful in defeating a much larger opponent but the division was so large he was not able to get on the medal podium.
Aiden Woodward,Belle McLean,and Luca Scott all competed in divisions which are designed as an introduction to competitive judo so they received participation medals.
