The Phoenix Center’s fencers did very well this past weekend qualifying all of our fencers for Y14 and U16 events at the 2010 Summer National Championships. The qualifiers were held up in Schenectady at Capital District Fencing School. Participants from our club included Russell Brearley, James Dolan, Jacob Shultis, and Tristan Dubin.
Jacob Shultis qualified for Y14 Men’s Epee and Foil. Jake also qualified for U16 Men’s Epee.
James Dolan and Russell Brearley both qualified for Y14 and U16 Men’s Foil.
Tristan Dubin qualified for U16 Men’s Saber.
We are very proud of our fencers and encourage them to train hard as Summer Nationals approaches. The competition will be tough there, but if we keep working smart and keep working hard we will do well.
The Div 2, Div 3, and Team Qualifiers will take place on April 18, 2010. Fencers must be 13 or older to participate in the Div 2/3/Team qualifier. Div 3 fencers must be rated D or lower at the time of the qualifier, Div 2 fencers must be rated C or lower at the time of the qualifier, and the Team Qualifier is for all teams from the same club who wish to fence at Summer Nationals.
