Woodland Boys & Girls Club Knocks Out Competition at National Championships

April was an exciting month for the Woodland Boys & Girls Club. This year, the Club teamed up with local Menominee Indian Boxing Club (MIBC) to create one unstoppable force. Ron Corn, Club CPO, says Club members have been eager to be a part of the boxing team, and they are enthusiastic about this approach to fitness and active mentorship. According to Corn, the partnership has improved Club participation, garnered enthusiasm about the program, and increased the Club’s visibility in the local community.

But that isn’t all! In June, two MIBC boxers took home 1st and 3rd place in the National Junior Olympic tournament in Charleston, West Virginia! Competing amongst 600 athletes from all over the country, a 13-year old and 10-year old Club kids scored victories that made not only the boxing club proud, but the whole Menominee Nation.

Congratulations, Woodland Boys & Girls Club and MIBC! We can’t wait to watch this knockout partnership grow!
