CFA Fencers have wonderful results at the JO quals!
Our fencers just plain rocked at the Junior Olympic Qualifiers and VA Cadet and Junior Championships for 2014! Grayson Katzenbach had an awesome weekend, as did Tristan Johnson among others!
Before we get into the results, I wanted to give a special shout-out to Nathaniel Sides who refereed and showed a level of professionalism and composure well beyond his years when a parent/spectator put on the worst display of poor sportsmanship I have ever seen at a VA event.
Read on for exact finishes, ratings earned and our qualifiers for the 2014 Junior Olympics!
Grayson Katzenbach: Gold: Junior Womens Foil, Gold: Junior Womens Epee and Bronze: Junior Womens Saber, qualifying for all three in JO’s and becoming this seasons Junior Champion for VA in Womens Foil and Womens Epee
