Moberly Stars at Bishops Stortford Teams and Rumble

Well done to the Moberly stars that fought in Bishop Stortford this weekend. Thanks to Nicole Nunn and the Bishop Stortford Judokwai team for another great weekend of events. With a team event on the Saturday and a Red, Yellow and Orange belt rumble on Sunday it is quite a weekend. The Team event on Saturday saw Moberly enter 3 teams in the very unique combined weight event. The Team event was as usual, very competitive and a very high standard. In the red and yellow belt 105k category, Moberly had two teams. Isabella, Isla and Eva had two very hard contests and fought out if their skins showing great team spirit but were unable to progress into the medal contests. Kadan and Parnell in the boys team were a player short in the first contest but still won 2-1. Then the team ‘borrowed’ Luka from Palavani, and they progressed all the way to the final were they were defeated by the team from Palavani! In the Minors and Pre-Cadet team 115k category, Oliver, Ali and Omar showed their experience as they won 3 contests to get to the semi final where some questionable referreeing decisions cost them a place in the final and they had to settle for bronze.
On Sunday Parnell was back at it winning a great silver in the rumble. Kristians also produced some great throws to also win a silver in his category.
