Thanks for all the help with yesterday’s tournament at Pope. Several people who have been around the league for years commented on how smoothly it ran. It takes a lot of work by a lot of people to achieve that kind of result. Well done!
Pope had two medal winners in this weekend’s tournament. In the women’s event, Chloe took silver. In the men’s event, Gil took bronze.
Ten of the 28 Pope fencers at the tournament earned points by finishing in the top 12 of their event. In addition to the medal winners they were, for the women, Katey C (earning her first league ranking this year), Alex B and Paige (earning a league ranking in her second tournament ever!), and for the men, Jake, Nick H, Stefan, Nick Sh, and Mike. The league’s top 84 ranked fencers of each sex who have also competed in at least three tournaments will qualify for the Individual Championship on 5 March.
Ten Pope fencers had the best finish of their career; Katey C, Paige and Katie V R for the women; Stefan, Alex S, Stephen, Hayden, Trey, Ryan G and Luben for the men. Also, Gil and Matt D equaled their previous best finish.
Pope earned 304 points in the tournament. The league is not tracking points earned by teams this year; but if they were, Pope would currently be 4th (up from 5th last month).
