Congratulations to Emily Beihold and Nicole Agob for finishing 1st and 2nd in the women's epee event. Good job to both girls for finishing at the top. Emily Beihold took the gold against Nicole Agob in the final making it a great showing for Swords Fencing Studio. Congratulations and keep up the good work girls!
We only had one fencer compete in the mixed epee event, but one was all that was needed for a great showing for Swords Fencing Studio. Out of a strong 29 fencers and 8 A's, Emon Daroian, a B15, fenced his way to the top and took home the GOLD medal and an A15! He fenced Justin Yoo, 2-time Junior Men's Epee World Championship Team member, in the finals and edged him out with a final score of 15-12! Great job and excellent fencing to Emon! Keep up the awesome work!
