Tournament Report – December 9th, 2023

February 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

At the Youth Appreciation Day tournament in Freeland (near Saginaw), Michigan, Honor Guards fencer Sophia Brown competed in the Y12 Mixed Foil event against eight other fencers, from three different Michigan clubs – Western Michigan Fencing Academy, Plymouth Ann Arbor Fencing Academy, and the host club, Bay Regional Fencing Alliance.

Sophia won two of her eight pool bouts, but lost in the Direct Eliminations to the very tall Robert Scott from WMFA. Her concentration and effort were solid all day long, and she put up a strong fight in every bout. Her final placement was seventh, against kids she had never fenced before, in her very first USA Fencing sanctioned tournament. Congratulations, Sophia! Well done!
