Fencing force is strong at Stamford

Last Saturday saw a strong contingent of fencers from all three of the Stamford Endowed Schools competing at the Four County Youth Epee Championships held at Oundle School. The competition was open to individual fencers in age categories from Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland. The event ran as a combined event, with county titles also being given to highest ranked fencers from each county.

For many new to the sport, this championship represented the first competition, which resulted in some fantastic placings:

3rd Rory Dresner
5th Reuben Baker

The following day, Ethan Mitchell-Clarke and Sophia Harper travelled to Nottingham to take part in the Under 12 events at the East Midlands British Youth Championship Qualifier. Both fenced extremely well with Ethan coming 8th in the boys and Sophia 5th in the girl’s event.
