Congratulations to the Liusers of the 3rd Annual Pope Team Tournament.
- Nick S (Captain)
- Mandy W
- Anthony S
- Luan J
A total of 31 fencers competed in 8 teams, each captained by a member of one of the League Championship winning Pope Teams. For full results and a copy of the bracket, click here.
Don’t for get, we have one practice left (3 April). We plan a salute to our graduating seniors, and two or three one-touch tournaments for fun.
This year we are holding two summer camps.
- June 3 – 6. This camp is for rising 4th through 9th grade students. We are looking for members of this year’s club to assist Coach at the camp. Volunteers will earn service hours towards their graduation Service Cord. Please contact Coach or Statsman if you would like to volunteer.
- July 15 – 18. This camp is for rising 6th through 12th grade students. Coach wants all Pope fencers to enroll for this camp if they will be in town.
Both camps will be in the Pope cafeteria. Please go to the Summer Camps page for more information and to register for camp.
We have just three practices left this season. We will be using the next two practices for the annual end of season Pope team tournament. This is everyone’s chance to fence a team match (just like the ones at the Team Championship last Saturday).
The eight members of Pope’s championship-winning teams will each captain a team in this tournament. We plan on having eight teams and will fence for all eight places, that means each team will fence three matches; probably one match on 13 March and two on 27 March (there is no practice on 20 March because of graduation testing).
We hope as many fencers as possible will be there. If you miss the first day, we can add you to one of the teams on the second day.
Here are the last four Wednesdays before Spring Break:
- 13 March. Start of Pope Team Tournament
- 20 March. No practice due to High School Graduation Tests
- 27 March. End of Pope Team Tournament
- 3 April. Last practice of the season.
For those of you who are interested in more tournaments, there is a large one at Georgia Tech on Saturday (9 March). This is a USA Fencing sanctioned tournament and you will need to join USA Fencing in order to … Continue reading →
