This post was deleted accidentally so here are the results from the first epee of the scholastic league which was held at Chaminade High School.
I was able to see a lot of growth from all fencers as it was not based on fencers' clubs but rather their school affiliations. It was a pleasure to coach students from both Allez and Swords and to see such great results in some of their first scholastic league competitions!
For the High School Men's Epee event, Thomas Moore started the day strong with only one loss out of the pools, but he ended up losing in the round of 16 to a lefty fencer. He finished a strong 9th out of 43 fencers! Keep up the good work!
For the High School Women's Epee event, Lexiss Morgan went undefeated in pools and fought valiantly in the final against a higher rated fencer and lost a close 14-15 bout! She placed 2nd out of 22 fencers! Great job!
For the Middle School Men's Epee event, we had several fencers in a fairly large field of competitors. Jonathan Oh fenced against his teammate in the 16s in a close bout against Rowen Hicks losing 12-15 to finish 10th out of 30 fencers, ages ranging from 11 to 14. Darius Kim also lost against his teammate Max Zhu to make the top 8 and finished in 9th. Rowen Hicks kept going and lost a close 14-15 bout to make the finals so finished in third overall. Christopher Dekermanji, at only 11 years of age, fought a close bout against a tough lefty in the 8s, 15-14, to make the semis to lose to another one of his teammates as well. He finishes in third as well. Great job boys!
For the Middle School Women's Epee event, Natalie Leung had a rough time in pools, but she regained her composure and won the entire tournament, earning her E17 and she has only been fencing less than a year! Great job!
Congrats to all the fencers, their famililes, and their coaches. Keep up the hard work and we look forward to seeing the future successes to come!
