The club was well represented with many other fencers turning in strong performances. The work they’ve put in through the season showed in their performances at Nationals and the bar has been raised for this coming year. Many of our fencers earned points in their age groups as well as the group ahead. Thomas Dudey finished the year atop the Y 10 Boy’s Foil, and Chris Ahn and Elizabeth Donnenberg finished third in the Y-12 Boy’s Saber and Y-14 Girl’s Epee point lists respectively. Allie Micek placed 4th in Y-10 Girl’s Epee, and Ben Parkins placed 5th on the Junior Men’s Foil. Elizabeth Donnenberg’s 6th on the Cadet Women’s Epee list closed the top-8s for the club.
The coaches would like to thank the parents for the support they’ve given this past season. The effort and support you show inspires your children and directly affects their results. These medals wouldn’t be possible without you.
