A huge congrats to Anya Michaelsen for her silver medal finish in the Div II women’s foil event at the Cincinnati NAC. In addition to a spiffy silver medal she also earned her B12! She is one of only a handful of B rated women’s foil fencers in the country, and at 14 she is one of the youngest as well. Anya has only been fencing for about 3 years now, having started in our school fencing program. She is a wonderful role model for other fencers in the club and a great example of what a fencer can achieve at CFA with hard work and dedication. Congratulations Anya, you make us all proud!
