North Bend twins Haley and Brynn Buskerud of the Southwestern Oregon Community College Judo Program competed in the Washington State Championships, held Feb. 17 at Kent, Wash.
The tournament, with more than 240 competitors, was sanctioned by USA Judo, the national governing body for the sport in the United States.
The 11-year-old sisters were awarded first place in the junior division for Nage no Kata. This kata demonstrates 30 throws, in prescribed sequence, with exacting form.
In the tournament competition, Brynn brought home the bronze medal in the girls 34-kilogram division and Haley was fourth in the same division.
The club next travels to Portland for a tournament on March 24.
