  • Peye Wong had a debut as an epee fencer in Y12 category and made top 8 – congratulations Peye on your first final in epee and we look forward to seeing great results of yours!
  • Bennett Cohen also made top 8 and was very close to earning a medal in Y10 age group – well done Bennett!
  • Our youngest fencers Anton Chmut and Leo Kharmats had their first competition ever and we are proud that they fought well and showed real fencing spirit. It was a good experience for them and we wish that they become as strong fencers as our older athletes are or even better!

NYFA Students Shine At Local Tournaments

  • Annie Morelli became a NJFA Youth Cup Champion(Y14 girls) beating in the finals a “B” rated competitor!
  • Skyler Chin added another gold to our treasury by matching Annie Morelli’s performance in Y14 boys event – Skyler just entered Y14 age group and yet already proves that he is one of the strongest athletes in the region!
  • Romain Cannone also made a strong showing by making to the finals but losing to Skyler Chin to make top 4 – Romain just entered Y14 age group and we are happy he does well despite lack of experience!
  • Sophia Chelnitsky also made finals at NJFA and went one touch short to beat her opponent to make top 4. She lost to the same girl that Annie Morelli beat in the gold medal match. It was a very strong opponent and yet Sophia showed that she is capable of fighting with the strongest opponents.
  • Aaron Fu and Annabelle Swain both made top 8 in the “E” and Under event in Connecticut. It was an adult event and good experience for our fencers.
