Congratulations to our teams for their superb performances at last weekend’s British School Fencing Championships. We are most proud! Head coach Mr. Gayle provided this update:
“Amelia, Isla and Evie were the youngest fencers competing on the day, and they attracted a fair deal of attention with their good control of distance and clever bladework.
Jake, Will and Dylan began the day with determination, but a sense they would be meeting some very experienced and skillful teams on the piste. However, it became apparent from the start that we were performing better than expected in the first round of poules. A win in the first round of DE was a seminal moment for our team. A second win in the second round of DE against St Benedict’s was also completely unexpected, leaving us both euphoric and exhaused, with a two point lead at 45-43 with seconds left on the clock.
The boys finally went out in the third DE, securing second place in our table, and 7th overall. Superb results. Superb fencing. Superb competition. Thank you British Fencing Schools!”
