A TOURNAMENT OF FIRSTS
Thanks to the flexibility of now having our own location, we were able to host our first annual Tidewater Open Fencing Tournament since 2004. Fifty fencers competed in five different events over the course of the weekend of March 5–6, 2016. This was the first sanctioned fencing tournament for some of our fencers, both big and small, who gave it their best and had a great time!
Notable TFC Fencer Results:
- Tim Vincent took 2nd place, updating his C to a C16 in the Open Mixed Epee
- James Newsome took 3rd place, updating his C rating to a C16 in the Open Mixed Epee
- Meredith Powers took 6th place in the Open Mixed Foil
- Carlos Hill took 7th place and earned his E16 in the Open Mixed Foil (Note: this was his first tournament! Well done!)
- Evan Hughes won 1st place the Y12 Mixed Foil
Also, a thousand thanks to all the parents and coach volunteers that made this event possible, we really couldn’t have done it without your help. You rock!
We are looking forward to hosting more tournaments next season!
