Club wins many medals
Budokan thought sending a team to the ACT international was worth a throw and it was right.
The Castle Hill-based judo club won eight gold, three silver and nine bronze medals.
Six more club members competed for bronze and two more finished only one place behind that.
Budokan had 31 athletes competing in 45 divisions, a club record for a national event. Next up are the Queensland titles in a fortnight.
Kings still in the race
Another outstanding contribution from AJ Ogilvy wasn't enough to get the Sydney Kings home against the Perth Wildcats in round 20 of the Australian Basketball League at Sydney Entertainment Centre on Sunday.
The Hills ace had 13 points and six boards, just down on his season's average of 13.1 points and 10.2 boards, but it wasn't enough, as the Perth Wildcats won 85-81, leaving the Kings with an 11-12 record and in a fight with the Melbourne Tigers and Wollongong Hawks for the last two final spots.
