Despite the terrible heat, the fencers, referees, and Swords Fencing Studio(with volunteers) were able to host their largest RYC yet with close to 300 fencers!
Flesches and lunges and victory screams echoed throughout the gym, even with the industrial fans blowing at full speed. Everyone was staying hydrated and the events moved along smoothly for the most part. As the pressure increased with more fencers, so did the heat, but everyone somehow kept their cool.
As events finished and fencers picked up medals and Tshirts, Swords took home a staggering 20 medals out of 20 events and we only fence epee!
The full list of results can be found here.
Congratulations to all our fencers!
