LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Two more trophies have been added to the growing martial arts collection for two La Grande residents.

Brandon Boltz won the brown-and-under continuous sparring division at the USA World Championships here, and Dallas Voss was two points away from first place in the black belt continuous sparring division this weekend.

About 1,500 competitors were in Las Vegas over three days, and it was a huge championship with 24 rings.

Voss, a DARK-9 Karate School instructor, received third place.

"I did really well in the early rounds," he said.

Voss fought Friday. Fighting began at 9 a.m. and the last fight was completed early Saturday morning at 1 a.m.

Voss lost his last match, which went back and forth, to pick up third.

Boltz, a DARK-9 student, fought seven matches over the weekend. There were 29 competitors in Boltz's division.

Boltz said his quarterfinal match was pretty close, and his last match was the best one.

First place was an awesome feeling for Boltz.

"It's something I've been dreaming about since I was a little kid," he said on being the best in his division.

Next up is a national competition in Portland at the end of this month.
