Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 10, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Judo strong in the South Top-notch coaching Closes' medals When all is said and done, it will be pretty ob- vious that the coaching of Yosh Se'nda is to blame for costing Southern Alberta a couple of medals in the Canada Winter Games judo competitions. However, while you blame Senda, you can hard- ly fault him. You see, he took two local boys and turned them into such fine judokas that both represented Canada in international competitions last fail, making them ineligible for participation in the Winter Games. Joe Meli and Tom Greenway went to inter- national tournaments in Brazil and Germany respectively last fall after earning spots on the Cana- dian team during the summer. They both ranked as sure medal winners in the Jeux Canada Games com- petitions, but participation in an international tourna- ment automatically dis- qualifies a judoka from Winter Games matches. Southern Alberta will, however, still have two representatives in the Games. Guy Pomahac and Scott Tanner, both of Lethbridge, were selected to a six man Alberta team which will go against representatives of the other nine provinces and the two territories in the three-day judo events at Winston Churchill High School. The judokas take to the mats Wednesday, February 19, and compete through Friday, February 21 with all bouts going at Winston Churchill. Although Senda is not coaching the Alberta team, he would like nothing more than to see Southern Alberta pick up a medal or two. In that way, he is sorry that Meli and Greenway are ineligible, although of course, he has to be more proud of their international accomplishments than of anything they could do at the national level. Pomahac and Greenway are. expected to carry the Lethbridge colors well, though, so Southern Alberta may come out of the Games with a pair of medals in any event. Pomahac will compete in the light heavyweight divi- sion while Tanner ranks as a middleweight. Also 'on the Alberta team, coached by Ronald Van Den Heuval of Edmon- ton, are brothers George and James Graham of Rainier. George competes as a lightweight while James is in the heavyweight division. Two Ed'montonians round out the squad. In the featherweight division, Ted Bolseng carries Alber- ta's colors while Randy Burke will represent the province in the open class.
