We had a great couple days of fencing this past weekend! On Saturday, March 9, 12 year old Connor McLaughlin went to Boston and fenced in the Y14 Mixed Foil, and came in 6th out of 24 entries. His only two losses (one in the pool, and one in direct elimination) came from opponents who tied third place in the tourmanment.
Then on Sunday, March 10, several Seacoast fencers went to the Youth & Veteran tournament in Concord, and in the three youth events, our fencers took four medals: Casey Wohlers, from our Rochester Club, was undefeated in both pool and direct elimination bouts, and finished winning the Y10 Mixed Foil. Nick Demers, who trains in Manchester, matched that performance in the Y12 Mixed Foil, and took the gold medal. He had earlier tied for third place in the Y14 Mixed Foil. The other third place finisher, was another Seacoast fencer, Sam Woods, out of our Rochester club, the only girl to finish in the top four.
Congratulations to all our Seacoast fencers who have been competing over the past three weekends, both locally, and in New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Massachusetts!
