Lachlan (L6), a key member of the Eltham College Fencing team, fenced his way onto the podium at the British Cadet Championships on Saturday 21 September.
He fought incredibly well, making his way to the final. The medal decider was an intensely close fight and, at 14-14, it was all down to the final point. Unfortunately this went to Lachlan’s opponent, however Lachlan was more than happy to take home a Silver medal from such a prestigious fencing tournament.
This term is a particularly intensive period for the U17 fencers, so it is pleasing to see Lachlan awarded silverware for his commitments.
