Just over a week ago, many of us were thrilled and moved by Pope Drama Club’s performance of Cyrano and Roxanne. Over the weekend they performed it again in the Regional One Act Play Competition where they won third place. Congratulations to the whole cast and crew for a stunning performance, including Coach Eichler who choreographed the fencing scenes and Leah Dudley who was in charge of hair and makeup (her first time leading in this area).
And special congratulations to Shannon Murphy (Roxanne) for winning the Best Overall Actress Award and to Andrew Antoci (Cyrano) and Devon Long (Christian) for receiving All Star Cast Awards.
Congratulations to Katie on qualifying for the Division 1A National Championship next summer. Division 1A is for fencers aged 13 through adult with any rating (A – U).
Katie finished 11th in the Division 1A Regional event at Northwestern University on Sunday. The 525 Division 1A points she earned with that finish takes her total to 1,385 points (1,000 points are needed to qualify for Nationals).
Another great tournament. This was only the second time that Pope won both gold medals at a league tournament. Congratulations to all of you, we had standout performances from experienced fencers and new fencers as well.
For the first time ever, Pope is at the top of the men’s and women’s individual standings and team standings.
