14 Medals are coming home !!!
Team Third Law’s kids and teens competition team hit the mats on Sunday, May 22 at the NAGA Boca Raton, coming home from the competition with 14 medals: 5 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze!
It was a great day for the kids and teens and their parents, with the majority of the competitors doing their very first competition. After driving across Alligator Alley to Boca Raton on Saturday and getting a good night’s sleep, the kids and teens headed to the tournament venue Sunday morning with their parents and coaches for their rules meeting.
Then it was time for a talk with their coach before the first students’ divisions were called!
Here’s a round-up of how the competition went:
In the kids divisions, dedicated brother and sister team Carson VanCamp and Olivia VanCamp both brought home medals. Carson won gold in his beginner gi division, and Olivia won bronze in her novice gi division.
Olivia went one and one for the day, with a very close match against the champion in her division. Very impressive!
Hard-working juniors class student Jacob Hurd won silver in his gi division. Check out the photo below of him taking his first opponent’s back.
