Aidan Schleuder took GOLD in Y14 Men’s Epee and Katarina Kline took GOLD in Y14 Women’s Epee at the GRAFA RYC – Annual Grand Rapids Youth and Junior Cup this weekend! All of our fencers competed very well, taking medals in multiple events. Way to represent Three Swords! Excellent job everyone!
Along with Aiden Schleuder’s and Katarina Kline’s first place finishes in Y14 Men’s and Women’s Epee, Rowan Schultz also finished 8th in Y14 Men’s epee. In Junior Mixed Epee Katarina Kline and Rowan Schultz tied for 3rd place. We also want to mention Andrew Kleman who fought hard through all his bouts in both Y14 and Junior epee. Amazingly, after only competing in two competitions Aiden has the points he needs to auto qualify for Y14 epee at summer nationals and Katarina won Y14 Women’s Epee after only fencing for 3 months. Thank you to Grand Rapids Fencing Academy for hosting, Carissa Eitzen for her support, and all the friends and family who came out to support our fencers!
