The first day of Summer Nationals brought the first medal, earned by Jackie Khrol: Bronze in Juniors!  We’re proud of Jordan Liverant who made top 32 in Juniors, and Anton Chmut who made Top 32 in Division 1.

Anton Chmut also earned his best result so far: Bronze in Juniors!  Skyler Liverant made top 32 in Juniors out of 324 athletes while only in his first year of Y14, and did great in Division 1, finishing 5th after pools.   Jackie Khrol also made top 32 of Division 1.  Josh Shuster took 4th in Senior Teams beating some of the strongest competitors in the nation.

Jackie earned her second medal:  Silver in Cadets!  What’s more important, she displayed beautiful and confident fencing.  What great consistency from MVP, Jackie Khrol, who earned 3 medals!  She set her personal best in both Cadet and Juniors events and was just 1 touch short of Cadet National title. Very proud!  Also congratulations to Anna Temiryaev and Caralina Khrol for making top 32 in Y14 out of 172 athletes.

Skyler Liverant medaled again, making Top 8 in Cadets and earning his A2018 ranking!  Another MVP of this Nationals, Skyler took Top 4 in Y14, Top 8 in Cadets, Top 32 in Juniors, and 35th in Division 1!  Great job Skyler!  Also congrats to Mark Dolgonos for making top 16 out of 254 athletes — just 1 touch short of top 8 – great fencing.

Our youngest fencers demonstrated very good fencing as well!  They competed among 107 of the best athletes in the Nation. Congrats to:  Ethan Zaydman and Landon Shchur who made top 16, and Dylan Kats for top 32.  Boys earned national points and fenced well.  Julian Brodsky, Finn Chimoskey and Nicholas Iarikov also fought well and I’m sure will do even better next time.

Caralina Khrol earned a top 8 medal and even though we hoped for gold we will work even harder to make it happen next time!  Also congrats to Anna Temiryaev who made top 16 and lost in a tough match to her teammate Caralina Khrol.  Ian_Goldfine showed solid fencing and was fighting till the end even when was down 10-1 and almost won the bout. Ian took 19th place out of 181 fencers.

Liza sets a final note for Nationals by showing strong character and making top 16 on her first Nationals!  Good job Liza.  Keep up the good work:)
