As almost every week, second weekend of March had its share of fencing competitions.
At the Marx Fencing Academy Youth Tournament, in Concord, MA, Olympia’s fencers Tony Whelan and Dayus Gohel (fencing someone twice his size!) won 1st and respectively, 3rd place.
In Salt Lake City, at the March North American Cup (DV2, YOUTH, 14TM), Olympia’s foilists, Daniel Zhang and Alexander Ma came in 5th and, respectively, 8th place.
Out of 107 foilists participating in Div II Men’s Foil, Paul Gaudet took 7th place and Allan Ding, 15th.
Big hands up to novice fencer Paul Chen for competing for the first time and making it in top 32 in Y10 Men’s Foil!
Y14 Women’s Epee: Emily Vermeule brings home the Bronze.
Y10 Women’s Epee: Sophia Shen comes in 5th pl.
Y14 Men’s foil: Allan Ding and Paul Gaudet make top 32 by taking 14th
and, respectively, 25th place out of 162 participating foilists.
This would make nine medals in total ( one gold, two silver, two bronze, two 5th places, one seven and one eight place) for Olympia’s fencers during this weekend.
Congratulations to everyone!!
