After a long season of training, competitions and provincial training camps, two members of the Fernie Judo Club competed in the Canadian National Judo Championships held in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu in Quebec on May 15 and 16.

Kara Goodman competed in the Junior Women’s U18 (-57 kg category) against other national competitors, and Fernie club alumni Liam Teetzel competed in Junior men U18 (-73 kg category).

Teetzel’s younger brother Noah was also eligible for the Provincial team but had to withdraw from competition due to a mid-season injury.
