Fencing Events

Sunday 6 November 2016 - RGS Enter Seven Entrants and Win Four Medals

We had a very respectable entry from RGS at the Bucks, Berks and Oxon County Age Group  Foil tournament  at Langley Grammar Sports Centre today.

Louis Gosling and Ben Curtis fenced in the u14 boys event; James Warner , Sean Metcalfe , Kian Pourkarini and Harry Walden in the u16 boys; Jon Yeates in the u18 boys.

Y9's opted not to fence because they had their German exchange students with them this weekend or otherwise we would have had another three entrants.

Some pleasing results too. Louis picked up a medal in the u14's and fenced really nicely. Kian and James faced each other in the quarter finals of u16's which was unfortunate - James lapsed into epee and Kian beat him to finish with a bronze medal. Harry, who met Sean in semi final won. Sean finished with a bronze; Harry was runner up in u16's  winning silver.

Jon Yeates was also runner up and silver medallist in u18 foil.

 We would like to thank old boy Seth Blackmore, who turned up to preside all day to great acclaim.
