RDF hosted our annual spring tournament on Sunday, with 52 fencers competing. Sixteen fencers from RDF competed, many of them in their first real tournament!

In Y12 Mixed Epee, Lily finished 2nd, Simon and Weston tied for 3rd, Kaden was 5th, Jack ended 6th, and Graham (our Y10 fencer) ended up 7th. It was the first real tournament for all of them (well, real epee tournament – there was that one time Kaden fenced foil in Iowa City). In Y14, Daniel was 3rd, Alex finished 5th, Nick was 6th, Weston was 7th, Lily ended 8th, Simon was 9th, Maggie was 10th, and Kaden was 11th.

We owe all of our parents, referees, and volunteers a big THANK YOU for helping us put on this event! We enjoyed getting to fence lots of great people from around the region, so thank you to everyone who came out to make this event a success – we will have to get a bigger gym next year!
