This past weekend at the 2013 Junior Olympics CFA’s fencers did exceptionally well! Douglas Daniels exploded into the Junior Saber event, earning national points in an incredibly strong field. Doug is our first CFA saber fencer to earn National Points and if all that were not spiffy enough, he was also the highest placing Virginia fencer in the saber event! Anya Michaelsen earned Junior and Cadet points in the womens foil, further adding to her national points. Sarah Simmons represented us in the Cadet and Junior Womens Epee and was the second highest placing VA fencer in the event, despite fencing hurt. Nathaniel (Bob) Lilly represented us in the Cadet Saber as well, placing 3rd highest among VA saber fencers behind Doug and Jacob Asch.
All in all one of our best JO’s yet. A huge congrats to our fencers who worked hard to qualify and then represent CFA and the VA Division so well on the National Stage. Most assuredly Doug, Sarah, Bob and Anya, you make us very proud!
