NYFA at QUALIFIERS, MERCURY CUP, EUF


This weekend was very challenging since NYFA students had many tournaments to fence including Long Island Junior Olympics qualifiers:

  • I’m proud to announce that NYFA qualified one more fencer –  Skyler Chin for Junior Olympics which will be held in Dallas this February. Skyler qualified for both Cadets and Juniors, placing 2nd and 5th. Good job Sky and good luck at JO’s!
  • Aaron Fu also participated in the Cadets qualifier and was 1 spot away from qualifying. Even though Aaron did not qualify he made the final 8 in a strong event!
  • Daniel Hurwitz also made NYFA proud as he made top 8 at Mercury Cup #2 – the hardest epee tournament in NYC – only “A” and “B” rated fencers are allowed to register for it. Daniel beat five “A” rated fencers and one “B” rated throughout this event and took 5th place! Good job Daniel – keep it up!
  • Gabriel Canaux and Annie Morelli took gold and silver respectively in the “C” and under event at Empire United Fencing Club – they really represented their club to the best standard possible!

NYFA at NAC B

  • 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.
