Dallas, TX – Three RDF members competed at the North American Cup tournament this weekend: Sarah Timmons Powell fenced Division 1 Women’s Epee on Friday, Jim Musgrave fenced Division 1 Men’s Epee on Saturday, and RJ Lesch fenced Vet-50 Men’s Saber on Sunday.
Sarah went 1-5 in pools so she did not make the 80% promotion to the direct elimination round, but she did score at least 2 points on all of her opponents. “I guess that’s not too bad for my first Div 1,” she said. She ended 118 of 138.
Jim was 2-4 out of pools (-6 indicator) and made the cut, but lost his first DE bout 15-4. He ended up 180 of 254.
RJ was 3-2 in pools and lost his first DE 10-7, ending 20th of 36 in Vet-50 Men’s Saber. Overall, RJ felt pretty positive about the experience.
