Fencing Success at County Championships!

Congratulations to all our fencers, who joined over 70 competitors at Wycliffe School for the Gloucester County Championships last Sunday.

Brett led the way, winning the U10 Boys Foil.  He battled his way to the final, beating boys almost a year older than him. The final was a nail biter with the lead constantly changing before they ran out of time with the scores level. It went to sudden death, but Brett composed himself before launching an excellent disengage attack which clinched him the title. He will be back to defend it next year!

In the U12 Girls Lottie secured silver on her return from lengthy injury, following her broken arm. Her precision with the point was excellent and she can be very pleased with a job well done. She is now focusing on national finals qualification in Epee early next month to become the first girl from Pinewood to qualify.
