NORTH AMERICAN CUP BALTIMORE

We had a great time and relatively successful March 10-11weekend at the North American Cup (NAC) in Baltimore, MD. Our leaders Nicolas and Maxwell won medals for 6 and 8 places in U15 category at the tournament totaling 209 fencers from New York and Texas to Vancouver and Los Angeles.

Both Nicolas and Max had 7 wins in poules and thereafter it was a long road to quarter-finals where they lost to more experienced US fencers. They showed best Canadian results and secured their #1 and #2 spots in Canada’s U15 team. Both guys went successfully through the Canadian Fencing Federation qualification process, which took into account points earned at two home and four international tournaments from October to March.

“We really enjoyed the tournament and we feel like we learned a lot,” said both.” We are looking forward to fencing at the next major competition – Canada’s National Championships in May, St. Catharines – and will try to carry over some of what we learned in Baltimore.”

Congratulations and good luck!
