No medals, but good results just the same!

Eric, Stevo, Taner and Bob travelled to Anjou this past weekend under the watchful eye of Coach Jon to compete in their Individual and Team events. 

Steveo did well in his first ever individual foil and is eagerly looking forward for more! Eric had a good time with Individual Sabre and was part of the 3rd place finishing sabre team!

Taner and Bob both competed in Veteran's Sabre and, unfortunately met each other during the DE's. Neither placed for a medal. However, both faired well in the team competition. The teams were selected by random draw. Taner's team finished in 3rd while Bob's team went undefeated into 1st place.
