Congratulations to our fencers who competed in the USACFC 2017 National Championships at Michigan State earlier this month! As a result of their outstanding performance, UTFC placed fourth overall – the highest placement in our club’s history. In addition, our women’s epee team took first place, and both men’s sabre and men’s foil placed fourth in their respective events; among the individual events, Sean Li placed first in men’s sabre, and Grace Neveu and Sonya Tkachman placed third and seventh, respectively, in women’s epee. Once again, great job to all the fencers who competed!
Congratulations to Andrei Jaume and Michael Lincoln Cravey for placing 1st in foil and sabre at the 2017 Poujardieu Memorial Fencing Tournament at Texas State last weekend! Andrei placed 1st in the C & Under Mixed Foil event and 8th in the Mixed Foil event, earning an E rating in foil. Michael placed 1st in both the C & Under Mixed Sabre and Mixed Sabre events. Great job, fencers!
