Langley brothers medal in Bridgewater

PORT HAWKESBURY: It was a big day for brothers Brian and John Langley, two athletes from the Port Hawkesbury Judo Club, who visited the Bridgewater Judo Club for tournament action on May 5.

“Brian had five fights, and he won silver in U12 and gold in U14,” said Wayne Reynolds, coach of the Port Hawkesbury Club. “John had 10 fights, and he won gold.

“That was the only two fighters we had down there, but we have six who are pretty well on the road all the time.”

Plans are in the works for the Port Hawkesbury club to bring back its annual tournament next year. In the more immediate future, the club will be visiting Amherst for a one-day tournament on June 9.
