1st – Sam
Y14 Women’s Epee

Additionally, Charlie earned national points with his 11th-place finish in Y14 Men’s Epee!
Many of our teen fencers traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to compete in the November North American Cup this past weekend! It was nice to see so many of our fencers there, and to see them all fence as well as they did – with determination and intelligence.
On Friday, the girls’ epee team (Miriam, Cosima and Sara) won the silver medal!
Saturday saw Miriam win the bronze medal in individual competition in Cadet Women’s Epee, and Cosima earned national points, finishing in the top 32 (she was 21st)!
Sunday saw the boys fencing in Junior Men’s Epee, and both Jack and Nyle made the top 32 of this event, earning national points, with their 17th and 28th place finishes!
Later on Sunday, both Isabella and Sara made the top 32 in Y14 Women’s Epee – Sara finished in 9th place, and Bella was 14th!
Finally, on Monday, Miriam made it into the top 32 of the Junior Women’s Epee competition, finishing 22nd!
Additionally this competition was the first large national competition for Tean and Charlie – it was great to see them get some necessary experience fencing at this level!
Finally, NCF alumni were in town to fence for their colleges, also – it was a treat for us to see Aidan (Duke), Justine (North Carolina), and Julia (Notre Dame) again!
