Moberly Stars at the 2018 British Schools Championships

Excellent weekend for the Moberly Stars competing at the 2018 British Schools Championships at EIS in Sheffield. Split into 2 year bands, it is an excellent opportunity for the judoka who miss out at the GB National Championships, to win a National medal.

In the year 6/7, Myeisha was so focused on winning, her contests lasted less than a minute as she stormed to the title.

In the year 8/9, Corey was also in great form with 4 excellent wins to get to the final of the u50k, but a lapse of concentration early in the final meant he had to settle for a silver. Maddie (u57k) showed great intent in her contests, but was unable to progress into the medals.

In the year 10/11, Anna followed up her victory last week with gold in the u57k with an impressive variety of attacking judo. Daniel (u50k) and Amel (u52k) both started with great wins but, suffered losses and had to battle hard for their bronze medals. Alex, also in the u50k, was unlucky not to progress to the medal contests.

In the year 12/13, Reuel was in absolutely devastating form. He made extremely short work of the u66k category, winning a stunning gold. Tyrese made a great start in the u73k, but an error in the quarter final meant he had to win his next two contest to claim bronze. He achieved this with his strong throwing ability.

Well done to all

Moberly stars at Southern Area, NHC and Alicante

Well done to the 9 Moberly Stars that made the journey down to K2 Crawley to compete in the Southern Area Age banded event yesterday.
In the AA category Parnell was in great form to win Gold, while both Kristians and Cian put in great battling perfomances to win bronzes.
In the minors, Myeisha showed great skill to win Gold in her category with some excellent foot sweeps.
Pre-cadets Kamal and Kyle both moved up to the u50k and dominated the group again to win gold and silver respectively again. Oliver returned to competition with a bronze in the u38k.
In the Cadets, Anna showed great improvement to win the u57k category, while Oliver claimed bronze in the u50k.

Over in Alicante, Spain, Omar won an excellent gold medal competing the Spanish Super Cup event at u38k. Ali just missed out on the medals but it will have been a fantastic experience for both boys.

Well done all
