Fencing results: NI Junior Foil Series

Fencing results from last weekend’s NI Junior Foil Series held at Grosvenor Grammar School in Belfast.

Particular merit goes to Max Moore who won a Bronze Medal in the Under 14 event. Max easily won his first Direct Elimination fight against an experienced fencer from Rathmore, and then narrowly lost to a fencer from Pembroke, Dublin in the semi-finals. This was Max’s first medal placing. Congratulations.

In the Under 16 event, Nkosi Kasathi Khumalo also fenced well to reach the semi-finals, also gaining a Bronze Medal. Kasathi drew his experience to beat a fencer from Carrickfergus in his first Direct Elimination fight, and then lost to a fencer from Newcastle High School.

The next Northern Ireland Junior Foil Competition will be held at RBAI in December.
