KSFC success at the Northern Youth Challenge

A great day at the Northern Youth Challenge for our foilists. The day started with the U12 boys where Alex and Harry both did well coming out of the poules with some good results. Harry finished seeded 2nd, got through the L16 and L8 DEs, but lost a tight match to finish with a bronze.

Next up was the U12 girls where Zita dominated the competition winning all her fights and finishing with a gold. Zita did so well she asked if she could enter the U14 and won 3 out of her 5 fights. She wasn't allowed to enter the DE due to her age, but would have been seeded 2nd so very well done!

Sarubhi also competed in the U14 in her first competition. She did well in the poule with some good results and came away from her first competition with a silver and a great experience!

Finally it was the turn of Samuel in the U14 boys. He had a good poule winning all his fights and only dropping a few hits. This gave him a good DE draw. However, Samuel just missed out on the gold, but earned himself a well deserved silver.

After a long day fencing, KSFC came away with 1 gold medal, 2 silver medals and 1 bronze medal. They all fought really well and the club is super proud of them. Sarubhi did fantastic in her first competition. Well done everyone!

Basic advice:

  • Competitions are always weapon and age specific so check entry details online.
  • Always enter competitions as far in advance as possible as most have an entry limit and a late entry fee.
  • Ensure you have the correct equipment for the level of competition.
