Fencing Success

The last three weeks has seen Eltham College students continue to shine on the fencing scene with some outstanding performances. On 30 April at the British Youth Championships Lachlan Jarvie (9DCR) and Francesco Roccatto (9EGH) reached the last 16 and Oliver Deal (7ADT) the last 32.

On 7 May at the Kent Foil Championships hosted by Eltham College, Francesco Roccatto won gold and Lachlan Jarvie was semi-finalist, eventually taking out the bronze position. In the U12 competition Aarav Chaudhari (6AC) was a defeated finalist.

On Monday 15 May Francesco Roccatto took part in the  2017 Newham Swords Junior Challenge Series and he remained undefeated up to and including in the final, where he won a convincing gold medal with a score of 15-8.

Many congratulations to all our fencers and best of luck to them as they continue to enter competitions.
