This 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.
Many congratulations to the Men’s Blues team on a fantastic result in the Quinte this weekend. They beat Bristol by 17 points, UCL by 1 point and Cambridge by 11 points. They also narrowly lost to Imperial by 1 point. Very well fenced to all involved and thanks to all who came out to support and referee.
Good luck to the Women’s Blues team, who have their Quinte this coming weekend!
