Fencing Sports Academy's Fencers Dominate Fairfax Challenge: Capture 30 Medals in One Glorious Weekend!
Fencing Sports Academy's Fantastic Youth Fencers dominated the Fairfax Challenge RYC #1 Region 6 competition. As a club we had 55 fencing entries compared to the next closest competitor at 32 entries, FSA fencers captured an amazing total of 30 medals, including 5 GOLD, 6 SILVER, 6 BRONZE and 14 Top-8 Medals. By comparison, the nearest next competitor in the Washington, DC area got only 18 medals. Nobody came even close to the number of GOLD and SILVER medals that FSA fencers captured. Well done fantastic fencers and coaches.
