Medal haul for stu­dents

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

A swag of medals was bagged by a group of se­nior stu­dents from the Mar­garet River Karate Club at the week­end who trav­elled to Joon­dalup to com­pete at the Wado Karate Open.

After fe­ro­cious bat­tle dur­ing the day-long tournament, all six com­peti­tors came away with a re­sult.

Se­nior club in­struc­tor Paul Cre­aney said he was im­pressed by the high cal­i­bre of the com­pe­ti­tion.

“It was par­tic­u­larly pleas­ing when you con­sider that two of our team (Taj Thomas and Cuba Goodall) had re­turned to com­pe­ti­tion after long lay-offs due to in­jury,” he said. “Also, ac­knowl­edge­ment should be given to Jaxon Deighton and Zane McKee — who are both just be­gin­ning on the com­pe­ti­tion cir­cuit — for their tremen­dous ef­forts on the day. Both showed poise well above their ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Cre­aney said the day’s re­sult was im­pres­sive, with all com­peti­tors manag­ing to bring home a medal.
