Of the fencers who have competed in four tournaments, the 84 men and 84 women with the most points qualify for the Individual Championship. 17 Pope fencers qualified this season, which is more than any other school in the league.
Round 6 will be on 16 December and Pope is competing at North Springs High School (not at Fellowship as originally scheduled).
With only two tournaments in this round, space is in short supply and there was a danger of having to limit the number of fencers that each school could send. As North Springs has room for more strips than Johns Creek, Campbell and Milton have been moved to the North Springs tournament. That move means that all the fencers who have signed up will be able to compete; it also means the North Springs will probably be the largest tournament of the season (including the Championships).
Our next tournament is Round 5 at Roswell on 2 December; that has not changed. However, there have been two recent changes to the tournament schedule that will affect Pope.
In Round 6 on 16 December, Pope was originally schedule to compete at Fellowship. Unfortunately, that tournament has now been cancelled and schools that had been scheduled to compete at Fellowship will instead go to one of the other two tournaments. Pope will now compete at North Springs on 16 December. With only be two tournaments, it is likely that the larger schools (like Pope) will be told to limit the number of fencers who compete.
In Round 7 on 13 January, Pope is scheduled to compete at the tournament hosted by Walton. That hasn’t changed, but Walton’s tournament will be held at Dodgen Middle School.
Round 4 of the regular season will be in 4 November at Campbell High School. There will be construction and an SAT going on at Campbell. Please read the directions on the Round 4 Tournament page carefully. …Continue reading →
