Our fourth tournament of the season is on 29 October at Lambert High School. Go to the Round 4 Tournament page for start times, directions and the Pope roster.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made this such a successful tournament! I particularly want to thank Christie Doak who organised concessions and Pam Kretzmer who took care of the referee table. But none of it would have been possible with all the volunteers staffing concessions, refereeing and score keeping, running equipment check and helping me manage the tournament at the scorer’s table.
Highlights of the tournament are on the Round 3 Tournament page and in your e-mail.
Pope alumna and current Northwestern University fencer Katie Van Riper took Gold in Division II Women’s Épée at the October North American Cup in Detroit tonight. North American Cups are a series of five national tournaments leading up to the National Championships in July.
Katie set several records while fencing for Pope, including being:
- The only fencer to ever win three individual league championships.
- The only fencer to ever earn 500 points in a season twice.
If you were not at Pope when Katie graduated in 2014, you may have met her when she helped out a one of our first practices this season.
Congratulations Katie. We are proud of you!
