Weekly Update - 4/7/14

Congratulations to Jake for qualifying at the Y14 National Qualifiers on Saturday. His bronze medal was well earned! Beck joined him in the Men's Saber event, and Clara fenced in the morning's Women's Saber. Gus, Evan and Clint fenced a bit of the Senior Foil Team event, losing to a strong team from Redstar, taking home the Silver medal.

Jake biting his bronze medal. But not too hard, don't want to damage the braces!

This week we'll have a couple of extra practice sessions: Tuesday & Friday we'll be in the gym starting at 3 until 7. Wednesday, Ranil Sonnadara will be stopping in to talk training and planning with parents and fencers . We'll up in the Sanctuary after 7:30 for those interested in joining us.

Next week is the Lutheran Church's Holy Week festivities, and we'll not be having practices at all. Enjoy the break, as it is also Spring Break for the CPS schools.

April 19th is the Division 2 & 3 qualifiers for Summer Nationals. We're looking forward to having a good group of senior foilists and sabreurs competing.
