Judo is a family sport for the DiMarcos, who travelled to Burnaby for a tournament this past weekend. Georgia brought home a silver medal after winning one fight and losing one; Jeff brought home a bronze medal after fighting four matches, winning two and losing two; and Anthony received a participation ribbon for fighting in the white belt division.
Anthony describes his first experience at a tournament as 'really hard'. “They had me in hold-downs the whole time and I couldn’t get out.”
The Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association, along with Participaction BC are hosting a ‘Hockey! TRY IT!’ event this weekend.
This event has been created for anyone, of any age, that has ever wanted to try hockey, but never had a chance.
The second half of the PeeWee Minor Hockey evaluations for kids with last names beginning with letters M through V, was held in Rink One at Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex last evening.
Approximately 50 players hit the ice, performing various timed skill drills, which will determine where they are placed in the roster. Each team is balanced as the organizers can get them. Every child that tries out, is placed on a team.
