Weekly Update - 12/2/13

Congratulations to all our Youth fencers who competed in the Windy City RYC over the weekend! Full results are on FRED (unfortunately, the organizer was not using the most updated version of FencingTime, so the Y12 bouts don't accurately reflect the score).

Additionally, Clara, Fiona and Theresa went on Sunday to the IFC Open. It was, again, a case of teammates knocking each other out in the DE rounds, as Clara won her first and then lost to Theresa. Theresa finished second on the day. This was also Fiona's first USA Fencing competition as she's only previously competed in the HS tournaments!

Alex fenced in the Mixed Foil; his first competition in nearly a year, finishing 21st.

This week: We'll have our normal weekday practices and classes. Due to a church function, we'll not have Saturday practice. It will return next week.
