Sunday 28th May saw the 3rd annual Bristol Schools Fencing Competition, held at Bristol Grammar School. We had two competitors in the Senior Girls’ events – competing in both the Sabre and the Foil.
The foil was fought in the morning with both Daisy Barrow (Y8) and Christine Wan (Y10) representing the school. The first pool was randomly selected, and performances in this round qualified fencers for the final ranking pool.
Daisy did particularly well, qualifying for the top pool in the final round. Following their great performance in the Foil during the morning, the afternoon Sabre event was nothing short of brilliant.
Here, both Daisy and Christine fought very well in the initial pool and, in the ranking pool the final results saw Daisy finish 2nd and Christine 3rd. Not only was this a great individual performance for both girls, combined it also meant that they won the Senior Girls Sabre Team competition.
Congratulations to both.
