On Sunday, four of our fencers competed at the Bengal Invitational, run by the high school kids of the Valley Fencing Club.
In Weston’s first 15-point bout, his opponent was Sarah, and he fenced better than he expected to, getting a lot of nice hand touches. Alex did a good job making an initial action to short target, followed by a deeper attack in his first 15-point bout and kept the score close for much of the bout. Sarah and Evan both defeated their opponents from the Iowa State University Fencing Club to make it to the final bout, which was a close 15-14. Sarah earned the gold medal, Evan took home the silver medal, Alex was 6th, and Weston was 8th. Sarah also won Women’s Epee.
