In the Cadet Boys under 26-kilogram class, Moose Javians filled the winnersí circle. Chris Gerry won gold ahead of Connor MacDonald and Cameron Walker ó who was fighting in his first tournament.

Vince Langevin and Mark Kerr added a one-two punch for Moose Jaw in the Cadet Boys over 46-kg class, as did Jarrod Robinson and Dan Drescanin (another first-time competitor) in Senior Menís combined 86/90-kg division.

Jeff Nelson added second in the Senior Menís under 65-kg category.

In girlsí action, two Moose Javians went undefeated to earn gold: Marissa Kerr (Cadet under 34-kg) and Stephanie Legault (Cadet under 42-kg).

Jovette Langevin kept up the rookie exploits, winning silver in the Cadet Girsí under 23-kg class.
