Silver Medalist!!

May 3, 2009 • Paige

Connor entered the qualifier competition for the Summer National Championships in July, and took second place! This is his first fencing medal. He fenced ten bouts, and won each one up until the gold medal bout. He was defeated 15 to 12. It was CLOSE and a very exciting bout to watch.

These three boys have the same coach and have known each other for three years now. I’m so proud of all of them. They were so supportive of each other, yet on the strip it was fierce competition.

Today’s event “14 and under”, tomorrow is “16 and under”, which brings in a few more tough fencers.
