The Pomme de Terre is one of the largest tournaments in the Northeast. With over 500 entries it becomes a very exciting event.
Over the weekend, our Asst. Coach, Will Barnhart earned his B rating in Epee and re-earned his B rating in Foil! Ian Shultis not only did a great job fencing Saber on Saturday, he also directed several bouts on Sunday, including many semi-finals.
We had a some of our Teen students fence in the Pomme de Terre, Andy Zito, Vincenzo Agostaro, Russell Brearley, Ted Nalesnik and Jacob Shultis. All of these fencers had a great time participating and fenced very well.
Saturday evening, Team Phoenix went out and explored Waltham, Ma. We found a great restaurant, The Watch City Brewery, which offered a variety of moderately priced meals. One of the more notable menu items was the Tick Tock, a deep fried cheese burger!
We would like to once again congratulate everyone who participated this weekend. Also, we would like to Thank all of the parents and family members who made it out to support and cheer for the athletes.
Results from this tournament should be up on askFRED.net soon. We are also in the process of uploading the weekends videos to ourYoutube channel.The results for the Pomme de Terre can be found on NEUSFA’s website
