About: The fencing team has been preparing for its upcoming tournament, which is its fourth tournament this season. With a little more experience, many of the members are trying to compete for a ranking. A lot of the team is ranked “U” or “Unrated,” but they hope to get a ranking between E to A. With the tournament coming soon, the coaches changed the team’s practices in preparation. This week, the team focused more on bouting, or match fencing, than its usual lessons.
Looking back: The fencing team competed in three tournaments, which took place in Los Angeles and San Diego. Co-Captain Kamea Campbell ’16 placed second in the last tournament, which served as a valuable experience for many of the other fencers.
Player’s Comment: “I want to at least not place in the bottom half,” Miya McLaughlin ’16 said. “I know for sure that Kamea is also trying to get at least a ranking of E.”
Around the corner: The team prepares for its next tournament on Jan. 31 at Griphon Studios in Placentia, CA.
