Fencing Successes continue for Genevieve
Following her victory at the Leicestershire and Rutland Fencing Union’s (LRFU) Women’s Senior Championships back in September, Genevieve Balmer (Y11) has continued her successes.
Earlier this month, Genevieve travelled to Mansfield for the East Midlands Youth Fencing Competition where she achieved 3rd in the Girls Under 17 Epee. The competition was fierce, with numerous ‘ranked’ girls’ present, many of which in the top 20 nationally.
Since competing in Mansfield, Genevieve has travelled to Leicester and successfully defended her Leicestershire and Rutland Ladies Senior Foil title. She also achieved second place in the Ladies Senior Epee Competition, losing to a very talented ex-England veteran.
Dyl Powell, Headmistress at Stamford High School said: “Congratulations to Genevieve for winning another fencing medal. We are all really proud of your achievements and determination for the sport.”
