Success at the British Schools Cahmpionships

Retford judo club succeeded at the Schools championships in March with a silver, bronze , fifth place and seventh place.

Alice took top honours securing a silver in her weight category.  After winning her pool she went on to fight in the final narrowly missing out on taking the gold medal.

Ben had to move up a weight division and fought well in the early rounds but was unlucky not to fight for gold and came back in the repecharge to take a well deserved bronze.

Georgina fought well in her group and came fifth.

James who was the youngest in his weight division fought extremely well winning two fights but was not able to progress further and came a well deserved seventh.

Alice and Ben attracted further recognition from the BJA for their efforts as volunteers as table officials for both the Schools championships and the English Open which took place the following day.

Well done to all four players, you all fought with courage and determination.
