Alexis Bradish and Paige Lidberg won gold and silver respectively in the Cadet female 61-kg division, as Bradish defeated Prince Albert’s Tamica Hallett by fall at 21 seconds before taking 18 seconds to defeat Lidberg in their round robin bout. Lidberg went on to defeat Hallett in the closest of matches, taking a 13-12 victory to win silver.

Sydnee Christmann didn’t have as much luck in her Cadet female 69-kg division as she lost by fall to Regina’s Makena Ricard to take silver.

Tessa Petruic also came away with a silver medal, with a loss to Saskatoon’s Emry Halbgewachs in the Cadet girls 90-kg division in the gold medal match.

Competing in the Cadet male 55-kilogram division, Liam Vargo bounced back from a tough weekend at SHSAA provincials by posting a 1-1 record and claiming silver. Vargo defeated Regina Cattown’s Elliott Blackwill by fall at 51 seconds but dropped a 12-4 decision to Prince Albert’s Donovan Neudorf in his round robin tournament.
