Success For Scilly’s Judo Club In National Championships

judo club 2012The long journey to Hereford paid off for members of St Mary’s Judo Club, yesterday.

They brought back 3 gold and 4 silver medals from the National Championships in Hereford.

9 pupils travelled from Scilly to take part in the British Judo Council’s closed event, held over the weekend in the city’s leisure centre.

The general public wasn’t allowed in, but the venue was packed with spectators.

Gold medals were awarded to Ethan Badcock, Sam James and Harry Stone for success in their individual classes.

In September, Harry secured the Welsh National Judo Champion title in his under 60kg category at the same venue, even though he’s not Welsh.

Jevon Hughes, Dan Perry, Lewis Taylor and Zoe Hitchens return home to Scilly today with silver medals.

Some of the travel costs were met by the Adam Mallon Sports Fund.
