Congratulations to Skyler Chin who made top 8 (93 participants) in Y14ME and earned his D2010 rating, even though it’s his first year in this age group. It is a great improvement since the Summer Nationals Y14 where he didn’t make top 32. Skyler was leading the whole bout for top 4 losing only in the very end by 2 points to the fencer that eventually took 2nd place. Great result Sky – we are looking forward to even better results from you!
Romain Cannone fenced his second National tournament and after a surprising top 16 in Summer Nationals Y12, he keeps surprising us by another good performance – Romain made top 32 (93 participants) in Y14 and got national points and qualified for Y14 Summer Nationals. Ale Romain!
Gabriel Canaux made top 32 (93 participants) as well in Y14 but couldn’t get to top 16 even though he deserves it by the level of fencing. In Cadets, Gabriel fell short by a couple of touches to make top 32 (167 participants) which would be a great result for a 14 year old fencer. But Gabe showed that he can fence at a high level and we’re sure he will do even better in the next NAC.
Annie Morelli made top 32 in Y14WE, got national points and qualified for Summer Nationals and also made top 64 in Cadets. Annie showed good fencing when she was fighting #1 seeded girl in USA for top 16 and lost only at the very end of the bout.
Mitchell Revich improved his result and made top 64 in Cadets (167 participants) and was close in the bout for top 32. Good job Mitch.
Anya Brosgol was fencing very well in Y14 and even beat the #3 seeded girl and a couple more top ranked fencers but couldn’t transfer her good fencing to DE’s – looking forward to stronger finishes from Anya in future.
