SEP 25, 2010. Royal Arts fencers traveled to Cleveland, Ohio and Rochester, NY for tournaments Saturday, September 25, 2010 to start off the 2010 – 2011 fencing season with a bang.
In Rochester, Frank Ditullio, 13, Bexley and his brother Harry, 10, Bexley fenced at the Flower City SYC (Super Youth Circuit). Frank fenced Y14 sabre and Harry fenced Y10 epee. In his first tournament, Harry qualified for the 2011 Summer National Championships in Reno, NV.
Cleveland hosted the Fencers Attacking Diabetes event, a large annual event with typically strong fencing. Ohio Wesleyan freshman Alyson Michael, 19, Indianapolis fenced her first sabre event as an Ohio resident in the mixed gender sabre event.
Liam Flanigan, 10, Bexley, fought hard through the day to earn second place in the Y12 epee event. This was followed later by Tom Anglim, 10, Powel dominating the Y12 sabre event winning all bouts and brining home the first place prize.
Congratulations to all our fencers on their great accomplishments at the beginning of the season and the promise of the fantastic results yet to come this year.
