MELBOURN Judo Club won silver and bronze medals at the prestigious Northern Home Counties (age banded) competition at High Wycombe at the weekend.
Emma Reid, who won silver at the National Championships six weeks ago, lost her first contest, but came back in tremendous form to win her next three contests to take silver in the girls under-44 kilo category.
Megan Sorensen, in the girls under-63 kilo group, had seven potential opponents. She too lost her first contest against a formidable opponent six grades her senior from leading club Camberley,.
However, she put things right to win her next three fights for a deserved bronze.
Last weekend at Royston Leisure Centre more than 50 members enjoyed a "funday", with games.
This weekend, with the last session of what has been a great year for the club, members will reflect on a series of medal wins that include a national silver and a northern home counties gold.
