On Feb. 11, 2012, the Owen County Judo Team competed in Springhill, Tenn. at the 2012 Tennessee State Judo Championship. The team returned with three medals.
Zac Widener dominated both of his opponents.
Underestimating the effectiveness of Wideners’ choke, his first opponent refused to forfeit, which resulted in him passing out.
In under a minute in his second match, Widener countered a forward throw with Ushiro Goshi, which involved bumping his opponent forward at the hips, lifting him straight up, and slamming him flat on his back.
