The Menomonee Judo Club got the year off to a great start with a dominant performance at the Wahadachi Judo Tournament in Milwaukee. The team took home 10 medals on Sunday. The tournament attracted more than 250 of the top competitors from around the Midwest. The competition was fierce and the quality of Judo was extremely high.
The Menomonee contingent consisted of 16 players. Each and every one of them gave a supreme effort. I couldn’t be more proud of our performance as a club.
