In the Boys’ Mount-Haes Foil we were extremely proud to have Matthew McKay gaining 10th place and Noah Brown achieving 14th place out of a total of 118 boys in the tournament. Rowan Luney and Ross Chambers also fenced well in this category.

In the Junior Boys’ Foil tournament (107 entrants) we had three boys who fenced, Michael Thompson, Nkosinathi Khumalo and Callum Watson.

Overall, it was a successful trip and the boys also had time to visit the National History Museum.
