Ee­sha Prasad (Year 6), com­pet­ing in the U40kg cat­e­gory, had to dig deep and bat­tle hard for a se­ries of gru­elling con­tests. She showed lots of grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion and was re­warded for her ef­forts by also tak­ing the bronze medal.

Judo coach Martin Rance said: “It was re­ally pleas­ing to see both girls on the medal podium be­ing re­warded for their hard work, as they have both been fan­tas­tic mem­bers of the school judo club.”

There were also in­di­vid­ual match wins for Vic­to­ria Da­ley (Year 4), Lara Martin (Year 5), An­drea Cas­taneda (Year 6) and Re­becca Wilkinson (Year 5), who all gained valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence, along with Melissa Cas­taneda (Year 6).
