The Grand Champion Title for the tournament went to Donavan Hack, who defeated several other members in a seniors open division to win the first prize of $250.

The parents and students of the judo club would like to extend their appreciation to senseis Munroe Albert and Ben Reinhardt for all of their volunteer time and dedication to the students.

The club is currently selling raffle tickets with the draw date of May 31.
