On the 27th January, ten fencers from Sarum Swords, travelled to Swindon to take part in the Southern Region British Youth Championships qualifier. Our competitors all produced excellent fencing and we were very proud of how well they represented us. Congratulations to our five British Youth Championships Qualifiers: Carl, Davis, Kunle, Truman and Ella.
Well done to Adam for winning the Bronze medal at the Cricklade Manor (Prior Park) Individual Novice & Intermediate Challenge. Adam won four out of his five group stage matches, before eventually losing 10-4 in the semi-final.
Congratulations to the Sarum Swords fencers who managed to win 10 medals between them at the County Youth Championships! Well done to our three new County Youth Champions and to everyone who represented our club. You all fenced brilliantly.
Well done to Carl, who won the Southern Region Novices Championships. The competition was open to any fencer in the Region who is over 15 years old and has been fencing for less than four years. Very promising result.
Fantastic results for Truman and Matthew this weekend as they took part in the Southern Region under 11 championships. In the foil event, excellent fencing in the group stage meant that the boys emerged as the 1st and 2nd ranked fencers going into the elimination stages. True to form, both boys made their way to the final. The final was a close exciting match, but Truman pulled ahead at the end, to emerge as winner 10-8. Truman’s day got even better when he won his second gold medal in the Sabre event, making him our club’s first Sabre champion. Well done to the boys for their great fencing and sportsmanship.
Well done to the five Sarum Swords teams, who all fenced brilliantly at the Southern Region Team Championships. Our top performance came from Davis, Truman and Kunle, who finished 1st out of 10 teams to win the under 14 team championships. We are so proud of all the fencers who represented us!
