Welcome Back

Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in Uncategorized

Dear All,

Welcome back! I hope that you had a good holiday and are ready for what is sure to be our busiest and most important term as a club.

This term’s highlight will undoubtedly be the Varsity match and this will be on Saturday 8th March in the Exam Schools. However before this we also have a busy set of BUCS fixtures and whilst the excitement is always about the Varsity match,  I firmly believe that we should be striving for – and indeed are capable of achieving – success in both both BUCS and against the lighter shade of blue. We have had an excellent start to the season and must not waste this.

Results From the Weekend

DSCF0350This weekend was full of fantastic results for OUFC fencers. Firstly congratulations to members of the women’s seconds sabre team, who entered the Leon Paul Sabre 1 League. Amy Nizolek came 5th after being seeded 2nd but being knocked out by teammate Hannah Schneiders. Natalie Page came 3rd, also knocked out by Hannah, who went on to come second.

The next day, them and the rest of the women’s seconds went to Cambridge to fence their seconds team. Sabre won 45 – 29, epee won 45 – 37 and foil lost 39 – 45, resulting in a 129 – 121 total win for Oxford. Fantastic results for the whole team and bring on Varsity 2014!

Finally, further congratulations to Idalina Baptista and Martina Zagaria who came 2nd and 3rd in the Women’s Foil National Novices event, both of whom were trained and at OUFC. A well earned result for both of them, and congratulations to their beginner coaches as well.
