This year, the Cornhusker State Games was opened to fencers from other states, so 3 RDF athletes traveled to Nebraska to compete on Friday! The location – a shopping mall – was a bit unconventional, but it was kind of fun to have an audience of passers-by. In Y10 Epee, Graham tied for 3rd, and then he earned the silver medal in Y12. Weston fenced Y14 and tied for 3rd. In Cadet, Weston was 2nd and Jazz finished 5th.
Daniel and Nick also attempted to fence in the epee event at Iowa Games this weekend, but partway through pools, a large chunk of the city of Ames – including the Beyer Hall gym – lost power, so the tournament was canceled!
