“We had 33 participants and a dozen volunteers of coaches, referees and organizers, plus supporters – family and friends,” said Dan Poelman, president of Judo Yukon, in an email to the News. “Great turnout … Some great throws.

“Glad to see the kids and their family come out to the tournament.”

Saturday saw six judokas win more than one medal. Four were from Shiroumakai.

Hannah King, Wyatt Burnett, Rowan Kingston and Judy Russel all won medals in their weight divisions and also in knowledge. King was the only to win two gold.

Other multi-medalists were Northern Lights’ Jerome Hoeden and Hiroshikai’s Jade McLeod.

Judo Yukon is planning two trips before the end of the season. Yukon judokas will compete in a large international championship in Edmonton in April and will attend the Alaska State Championship at the end of May fallowing the Yukon championship in Whitehorse.
