Menomonee Judo Players bring home 25 medals from tournaments in Milwaukee and Vernon Hills!

Over an 8-day period late last month / early this month, players from Menomonee Judo competed in two tournaments. The first one was the Wahadachi Judo Tournament in Milwaukee, WI on Sunday, January 26th and then the following Sunday, February 2nd in Vernon Hills, IL at the Cohen's Novice Tournament. In total 25 of our players participated. That group took home a remarkable 25 medals, including 11 gold! Everyone fought extremely hard and exhibited quality Judo and exemplary sportsmanship. Our young, inexperienced players far exceeded my high expectations with they'd efforts. It's shows that the club has great depth right now and a very bright future. A special mention goes to Bradley and Alex Bzdusek, Alexi Schuler and Eliza Matyas (and their parents), who competed and medaled at both events.

Below are the complete Menomonee Judo results from both tournaments.
