Sleeper Athletics Youth Team had a great showing at the Arlington Submission Challenge. All the competitors showed tons of skill and sportsmanship and had some super exciting matches.
The under 12 gi white-yellow divison was stacked with Sleeper Kids and everyone had great matches. Roman and Tenocht met in the finals and had one of the best matches of the event. Way to go both of you, great techinique and loads of action. Brandon, despite being one of the smallest in the division, surprised everyone with his tenacity and spunk. Henry made his tournament debut and had lots of great matches and showed tons of heart. Way to go Henry on your first tournament.
In the over 12 gi white – yellow division, Kaleb took home 1st place after two great matches. Kaleeb demonstrated his judo skills, hitting a strong throw in the first match. He followed up with two chokes to finish both matches. Great job Kaleb.
The under 12 no gi division was stocked with tough kids especially for a crew of 7 year olds. Everyone competed hard and showed tons of heart and skill. Tenocht secured third place after having several intense matche with some really skilled opponents.
Way to go everyone!!!!! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication. See everyone in the gym on Monday to start preparing for the Revolution in November.
