SCION Championships Cork
Scion Open Championships
Congratulations to the students of Grandmaster Howard's Dojang who travelled to Little Island in Cork for the 12th SCION Championships. It was a long trip but there was good representation from our School. We left the Maple Centre on the Navan road at 6.30 am and headed south.
It was a big competition with about 500 competitors, so if anyone won a medal they probably earned it. There was a busy but nice friendly atmosphere in the hall and all our students, instructors and umpires were made to feel very welcome by the host Mr Liam Corkery and his school. In the spirit of friendship Mr Sherry was recruited on a male black belt patterns team from UCC and picked up a silver medal for his efforts.
Thanks to Mr Wilson for giving up his day to be an umpire, Master Howard and Mr Fox who acted as coaches, and all the parents for supporting the students.
Well done to all that competed. The results of the day are below:
Max Cleary gold 11years boys green/blue patterns
Lee Parsons Gold in adult red/black patterns
Mr Leon McSherry silver 4th degree patterns
Mr Leon McSherry silver male team black belt patterns
Finn Howard bronze 12 year boys green/blue patterns
