Because of lingering school closings, Saturday’s tournaments are cancelled. The regular season is over. Assuming Northview reopens by 22 February, our next tournament will be the Individual Championship.
US Olympic silver medalist Tim Morehouse will be at Dodgen Middle School on Monday 27 January to kick off the Fencing in the Schools program that Jaeger’s mom won (see the 17 November post).
At 6 PM, he will move on to Pope to meet the Pope Fencing Team in the cafeteria. We would like as many fencers and their families to be there to hear Tim speak (I imagine there will be pictures and autographs as well). Copies of Tim’s book “American Fencer” are available for $20 and Tim will sign them for you at the reception, see this flyer for details. Please reply to the e-mail from Statsman if you would like to buy one so that we can tell Tim how many books to bring.
We will have pizza, snacks, soda and water, and the event will be over by 7:30. Fencers: please wear your Pope fencing t-shirts.
Congratulations on another great tournament.
Katie took gold while Christi, Luben and Ian took bronze. Sydney had her first top 8 finish.
Katie and Luben remain in first place in the individual standings and the Pope men and women remain in first place in the team standings.
