Burnt Hills Grad Qualifies for Jr. Pan Am’s

By | Sports

IRVING, TX - Burnt Hills High School graduate, Eric Skylar, 19, from the Glenville based Jason Morris Judo Center (JMJC) captured a Gold medal at the Scholastic National Judo Championships at the Irving Convention Center on March 5 and 6, posting a 4-0 record in the 90kg under 21 category. This event also served as the trials for the Jr. Pan Am Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina on July 1-4, for the gold medalists in each weight class. 



This was Skylar's first trip to the podium and he qualified for the Jr. Pan Am’s for the first time as well. Skylar's gold gives the JMJC its 30th Scholastic Nationals medalist and it's 11th Jr. Pan Am team member in their 15-year history. "Eric has come a very long way in the three years he has been with us" commented his coach and four-time Olympian, Jason Morris. "He has improved consistently over that period of time and can go much further if he stays the course," Morris added.
