Tournament updates, general fencing posts
In the first Cadet World Cup of the season, Emon Daroian finished well in his 1st International competition with 7th place out of a field of more than 200 fencers! He was with Head Coach Tigran and he fenced his best to lose to the number 2 seed in top 8. Coach Tigran and Emon also had some time to have fun before they buckled down and fenced in the Men's Epee Team event where Team USA took all top 4 spots out of 40 teams. Emon Daroian anchored throughout the tournament and finished with a Team Silver losing the final bout 41-45 to another USA team. Great job for his first international tournament ever! Congratulations to Coaches Tigran Shaginian and Sorah Shin!!!
We had 3 fencers represent Swords this weekend and came out with some national points and a Silver medal!!! Lauren McLane earned her first National points in Y12 Women's epee with a 9th place finish and Irene Yeu lost in the final 9-10 in Y14 Women's Epee to earn more National points and to take home a Silver medal! Great job girls! Congratulations to Coaches Sorah Shin and Tigran Shaginian!
