to teammate, Thien Scofield, in his second DE. Annabelle had a rough start in Y12 Women's Epee with 1 pool win, but fought hard and won her first DE against a higher seeded opponent to lose her next one against the 10th seed. Thien Scofield showed great promise and resolve by winning his entire pool in Y10 Men's Epee to finish 17th overall out of 69 fencers and to earn his first National Points ever! He also fenced Y12 Men's Epee and was a good foot shorter than his opponents. He split his pool 3-3 and
easily 15-6 and then lost to the 22nd seed 4-13 as time started to run out on her. She also performed amazingly well in Y10 Women's Epee with a Silver medal! It was her first time on the finals strip and she was a little awestruck. She lost a 9-6 lead to lose 9-10 in priority against the #1 ranked girl in the nation. It was her first time fencing both the #2 and #1 ranked girls in the country and she fought valiantly. We will keep working and striving for the best! I'm so proud of all my students and how hard they have worked. This event showed us more of what needs to be worked on and what the future can bring. Congratulations to all and let's keep working hard!
