The varsity fencing team had two meets on November 13 and November 20, at Stevenson and Catholic Memorial High School.
For two of our fencers, Isaac Jansen and Sohum Sharma, the Stevenson Invitational was their first meet. Both fencers “fought” hard, with Isaac finishing 41st out of 55 epeeists, and Sohum 38th out of 54 sabrists. Harrison Koss finished 40th in epee, Connor Artley 27th in sabre, while Madison Kob and Ruthie Yu finished in the top 32, finishing 30th and 28th out of 49, respectively. By coincidence (or fate), Connor and Sohum fenced each other in direct eliminations.
At Catholic Memorial, we brought our biggest team yet, adding Tyler Riederer, who finished 40th out of 46 men’s foilists, and Eleanor Plamann, who finished 44th but showed steady improvement.
Other placements at Catholic Memorial:
Harrison Koss - 23rd of 50. Isaac Jansen 35th. Sohum Sharma 34th of 43. Madison
Kob 19th of 44 (a personal record), and Ruthie Yu 12th out of 44.
Thanks to the fencers and everyone who came out to watch!
For those interested in fencing, our next meet is today, December 1, at the Freedom Hall North Gym from 3-9 pm.
