Tyson Nelson, Macy Verigin, and Meagan Campsall teamed up to take home gold at the Penticton Friendship Karate Tournament on the weekend.

Tyson Nelson, Macy Verigin, and Meagan Campsall teamed up to take home gold at the Penticton Friendship Karate Tournament on the weekend.

Close to 160 competitors from Chito-Ryu Dojos from across western Canada competed in the two-day event performing katas and Kumite matches to see who would win the tournament Samurai Swords.

The trio of 11-year-old Beaver Valley Chito-Ryu Dojo students outdid themselves, improving on last year’s silver-medal placing, scoring a clear half point ahead of everyone else to capture gold medals with a very near perfectly synchronized kata.

In individual kata Tyson narrowly missed the podium by three-tenths of a point for bronze.

Meagan and Macy competed in the same division and did excellent too. Meagan tied for the bronze medal and had to do a tiebreaking kata. Like Nelson, Meagan scored three-tenths of a point less and lost her tiebreaker match just missing a bronze medal.

Macy continued her medal-winning streak taking home a silver medal in her kata.

Call Kelly at B.V. Rec at 367-9319 for more information on the Chito-Ryu Dojo.
