Kent Youth Championships 2011 - ECfencers results

Nineteen ECfencers took part in this years Kent U10/12/14 Championships this weekend hosted at Eltham College. We won ten out of a possible twelve medals including all three Gold medals.
Lewis Tuck, Luke Wells and Andrew Hughes won the Under 10’s,12’s and 14’s titles respectively which repeats the success of Eltham fencers over the past two years at this competition.
Our under 10’s have continued to show their domination in South East England by having all six fencers placed higher than any other club or school fencer.

The fencer of the day was Lachlan Jarvie who is our youngest fencer in the team and faced fencers two years older in his first competition. He won four of his pool matches (all non-ECfencers) and only lost to his two team mates both senior in years. Lachlan was finally placed fifth just outside a medal position; not bad for a fencer with two more years in the same age group. Well done also to his coaches Elliott Grover and Chris Galesloot, they must be very proud of his performance.

All our fencers were great on the day, but other coaches were very complementary of the footwork skills of Isak, the choice of actions from Arthur, Felix, Dimitri, Charlie and Owen, the dedication from Luke, George and Ethan and the sportsmanship from Edward, Lewis and Elliot.

Thanks to everyone who helped run the event; Katie, Manola, Peter, Janet, Pyscho, Andy, Flo, Chris, Tarann, Mick, Ellz, Jon, Fran, Cos, Spike and anyone I have missed.
