British Youth Championships 2011
Over the Bank Holiday weekend five ECfencers competed in six events at this years British Youth Championships held again at the Sheffield English Institute of Sport.
To qualify for this event fencers need to be placed high in their regional championships therefore only the best fencers are able to compete in this competition.
Expectations were not high as our fencers were either the youngest in the age group or it was their fist visit to this competition but the pleasant surprise of the weekend was Ben Dines (pictured) continuing his winning streak since switching to Sabre as he won the 8th place medal in U12 Sabre. This also means Ben has automatically qualified for next years Championships.
Andrew Hughes in his first year in U14 was well placed in 12th in Epee and all our fencers performed and behaved very well.
Results of ECfencers are:
U18 Foil - Ells Grover 39th place
U14 Epee - Andrew Hughes 12th place and Adam Whitelaw 34th place
U14 Foil - Andrew Hughes 21st place
U12 Sabre - Ben Dines 8th place and Tom Hood 33rd place
