On Saturday, May 14 the Fernie Judo Club brought their season to an end by attending  the annual Invermere Judo Tournament. Eight senior members of the club competed with other judoka from the East and West Kootenays to bring home four medals.

Competing in Junior Divisions were Noah Teetzel and Peter Dunn who each had three tough bouts before being eliminated and finishing in fourth place. Liam Teetzel had a very strong performance to finish with a silver medal.

In U17 divisions, Sydney Koevoet finished with a silver medal and Fernie competitor Nic Dunn fought in a strong group consisting of two provincial team members and brought home a well-deserved bronze medal.

In senior mens heavyweight division was Mike Koevoet who finished with a gold medal and a very competitive middleweight division found Jason Warshawsky being eliminated by team mate Mike Teetzel who finished just outside of the medals.

The Invermere tournament brought the Fernie Club to the end of another successful judo season. The Fernie Club will resume in the fall when it will enter its 25th year of bringing the sport of judo to Fernie. The club would like to thank all the parents and community members who helped support the club in its many activities this season.
