ECfencers dominate the Kent Championships

As coaches, we have high expectations of our fencers, and our fencers have set high goals for themselves and train hard to achieve their targets

Eltham College fencers have been very successful in the Kent Championships for the past three years and last weekend we won 8 medals which is testament that our fencers are the best in the county.

We are especially proud of our Under 10 fencers who won all the available medals in their age group. This proves we have a great potential and can produce future champions.

It is difficult to pick out who were the best fencers as we were so very successful, but as usual Adam Aspden produced a mature performance to win silver in the Under 14 event.

The Wells brothers, Luke and Ethan, won silver in their age groups by keeping their cool and maintained focus.

The Tucks, Owen and Lewis, had a great days fencing and both won bronze in their age groups.

Performance of the day goes to Fergus who stormed to victory to win gold in the U10 age group. Fergus was consistently calm under pressure and out fenced all his opponents.

Good sportsmanship is always high on our agenda at competitions, we want our fencers to have fun and help others. To this end our fencers helped set up and clear away the event, and refereed during the day.
