After qualifying for the Summer National Championships, five Seacoast fencers will be competing July 7 through 11 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. These five will be competing in 13 events, all of them in Division 2 and Division 3 categories.
Grace Murdoch Roy will fence four events- two Women’s Epee (Div 2 & Div 3), and two Women’s Foil (Div 2 & Div 3). Her brother Charlie will fence two events, Div 3 Men’s Foil and Div 3 Men’s Epee. They live in North Conway, and train at the Rochester Club. Caleb Wenger will fence the Div 2 and Div 3 Men’s Epee, and also Div 3 Men’s Foil. He lives in Manchester, and fences at the Manchester Club. Trevor Wohlers, from Rochester (where he also trains), will compete in both the Div 2 and Div 3 Men’s Foil. Jacob Chreky, from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, who spent this past school year as a City Year volunteer, will be in the Div 2 & Div 3 Men’s Foil. He spent the past year training at the Manchester Club.
Chris Pullo, the Head Coach at Seacoast Fencing Club will be accompanying them at the National Championships. We wish all of them good luck at the National Championships!
