Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in Results

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.

Seventh Week Notices

Dear All,

As term draws to a close, there’s still lots going on in OUFC both on and off the piste:

1) Women’s Quad Results

The Women’s Blues got their season underway last weekend when they fenced at the University of Surrey.  They all fenced very well and had a convincing win over last year’s BUCS champions, winning 129 – 107 against Imperial, but lost closely 117 – 130 against Surrey and 114 -126 against Cambridge.  Special congratulations to Imogen Stead and Harriet Dixon for their first appearance on the Blues, and well done to the foil and sabre squads who won all their matches in every fixture. Extremely promising results and best of luck in their match against Cardiff which will take place some time, probably next term….
