The Waynesville Judo team took top honors at the Fall Brawl judo tournament Oct. 5 at the Waynesville Recreation Center by winning the coveted Team Trophy. The Waynesville team competed among nearly 100 contenders from five different states, who attended the event.

“Overall we were pleased with the event,” said Sensei Jimmy Riggs.  “We had lots of good judo, the Sunset Cruisers and great barbecue.”

In addition to the Team Trophy, individual competitors from the Waynesville Judo team also claimed numerous gold, silver and bronze medals in their divisions. First place winners were: Braden Riggs, Max Rogers, Jessi Shell, Billy Frizzell, Eli Frizzell, Gage Cole, Dalton Greer and A.J. Flowe.

Second-place winners were: Trevor Phillips, Travis Austin, Carson Frizzell, Dessa Phillips, Mitchell Ensley, Greg Rogers and Samuel Danks. Third-place winners were: Jazzie Baxter and Cristian Kuehl.

The club’s next tournament will be at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. For more information about the program contact Jimmy Riggs at 828. 506.0327.
