Great re­sult in fun match

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

CORAL Coast Judo Club ju­nior mem­bers trav­elled to Cairns for a fun com­pe­ti­tion last week­end in a warm-up for the big bouts at the end of the month.

The lo­cal kids did ex­cep­tion­ally well for their first com­pe­ti­tion, en­gag­ing in their very first fights and hav­ing a great time in the process.

Ry­der Sheri­dan and Bron­son Allen came first in their di­vi­sions.

Sum­mer Bellero and Skye Stevens came sec­ond in their di­vi­sions.

Skye Stevens fought in a weight di­vi­sion above her own and the only per­son in that di­vi­sion that could beat her was Toby Sa­ga­cio, who re­cently won the gold medal at the Queens­land In­ter­na­tional Open in the un­der 36kg boys di­vi­sion.

Paige Bellero demon­strated some beau­ti­ful judo tech­niques in her fights and her fu­ture looks promis­ing.

Coral Coast Judo Club in­struc­tor Daniel Al­bury said the kids did the club proud.

‘‘We had seven stu­dents com­pete and three that didn’t lose a fight,’’ he said.

‘‘It was great for them to be able to get a prac­tice com­pe­ti­tion in be­fore the big tour­na­ment at the end of the month.

‘‘We are re­ally proud of them, they had fun and got a taste of com­pe­ti­tion.’’

The next tour­na­ment the lo­cal kids will at­tend is the Cairns In­ter­na­tional Open on Sun­day, May 26, at Yorkeys Knob where they will meet com­peti­tors from as far away as Townsville.
