And There’s More…..UK U12 Sabre Fencing Results
Following fast on the heels of the fantastic news that we have a UK Champion Climber within our little school community, we can now proudly announce that we have another UK placed pupil, this time for Fencing.
Last weekend, the British Youth Championships for Fencing were held at the EIS in Sheffield. The Championship covered all three types of fencing: foil, epee and sabre. In order to get to the final, the participants had to go through various regional rounds in their age categories. After qualifying as the U12 East Midland Champion, ‘The Tilster’ then fought her way through the seeding rounds called the poules. After winning three of her five matches in the poules, she progressed through the first knockout round winning 10-6, then lost to the eventual Bronze winner in the last sixteen. ‘The Tilster’ is now ranked as 12th in her age category for British Sabre Fencing! What makes this even more impressive is that she has only been fighting for just over a year. I can’t wait to see just how far she is going to progress!
‘The Tilster’ got into fencing following a taster session here at school, but if any of you fancy having a go pop along to HVC on a Thursday afternoon starting at 3.30pm. If you would like any more information please feel free to chat to Mr Petts.
Again, how proud are we all to have such impressive sporting prowess within our village school….and I haven’t even mentioned swimming for Derbyshire, Ice-skating, running…the list goes on!
