This was a big year for our fencers at Junior Olympics. We had nine participants – our largest group ever! We fielded two Jr. Men’s Sabre Teams and a Women’s Sabre Team. These are nice milestones and definitely something to reflect on as we come upon our annual celebration and turn Three. There were a few themes that emerged from this past weekend: solidarity (among the club and Division), professional development, and hunger.
