Summary for the Richmond North American Cup: 13th Vet 60 Women’s Sabre, 25th Vet Combined Women’s Sabre, 30th Vet 60 Men’s Epee. Thanks to Brian and Frank for strip coaching Dede and Mark.
Monday’s fencing at the NAC: Mark placed 30th – he went 2 and 3 in the pools in Veteran 60 Men’s Epee (2 of which were 4-5), won his first direct elimination, and lost in the round of 32 to Ommer Bruce II, the eventual 9th place finisher from California (photo is Mark versus King, round of 64).
Sunday’s fencing for us at the NAC was Veteran Women’s Combined Sabre – age groups Vet 40, Vet 50, Vet 60, and Vet 70. Dede won 2, lost 4 in the pools (one of which was a 4-5), and lost in the direct elimination round of 32 to Jane Eyre, first place winner in Friday’s Vet 60 Women’s Sabre and the current Vet 60 World Champion. In a strong field Dede placed a respectable 25th.
First day of the Richmond North American Cup. Dede placed 13th on Women’s Veteran 60 Sabre, winning 2 in her pool and losing one 4-5, won her first DE handily, and lost her second DE to the eventual 2nd place. She fenced strongly, and she is steadily improving (photo is Brynildsen versus Dede, round of 32) .
