This was the 2nd year that St. Francis hosted the BuccaneerBlades 3 school Primary tournament.
This year it was a cross county affair with a big thank you going to all the teachers and parents of Sherston and Leighterton schools who helped support the children. It was great to see how far the students have come with their foil fencing.
Saturday 15th of November was a big day for many of our fencing students as they attended the 2nd Sherborne Fencing Tournament held at the Sherborne Girls School, Dorset.
With over 10 schools and fencing clubs represented and nearly 50 competitors it was a really friendly tournament.
It was a great day with fabulous performances across the three age groups and in both sabre and epee. There was also the Prof. Jim Perry “Good Sportsmanship Trophy” up for grabs.
A big thank you to all the parents and supporters who taxi-ed and cheered the fencers on and to the referees, without whom, there would have been no tournament.
See you all next year!!!!!
