Skill, determination, fortitude and cleverness were all evident in her game Saturday, Feb. 18th, as she fought her way onto the finalists’ podium out of a field of more than 200 competitors. We are very proud of her and happy to see her dedication to hard work be rewarded!

NCF Fencers achieved some exceptional results at the January North American Cup competition this weekend in Columbus, Ohio!
Jack Bradford won the Bronze Medal in Junior Men’s Epee on Monday, and, in the same event, Nyle Sykes finished 13th!
Miriam Grady finished 12th on the continent in Division 1 Women’s epee on Sunday. Miriam also finished 20th in Junior Women’s Epee on Friday.
Those results (top 32 out of 150 or more fencers) earned our fencers national points in those events!
Our teams also fared well, with the Men’s team of Jack Bradford, Nyle Sykes, Gary North and Sam Senseman finishing 6th, and the women’s team of Ella Morgan (on “loan” from DFC), Cosima Martus, Sara Proctor and Rachel Castro — and coached by NCF alumni Julia Barry – finishing fourth.
As always, we are proud of fencers’ efforts and determination to achieve, and we are happy to see their hard work in the gym rewarded! Congratulations fencers!
