Flynn Smith, Daniel Galleno, and Gabe Avey competed in U14, Smith and Seve Avey competed in U16, while Sienna McCorkell competed in U21 women, and fought an opponent from Tokyo University. No medals.

“This tournament was high caliber,” said Sensei Gelinas, noting over 600 athletes from all over Canada, as well as Japanese teams.

“Now we have a few smaller tournaments and training to attend — PG Open on April 5, Canmore inter-provincial training camp and maybe a U14-U16 team competition in Burnaby at the end of April.”

The club is hosting a tournament here in Dawson Creek at the Encana Events Centre on May 4, before nationals held in Edmonton May 16 to 19.
