Another Super Saturday of Results

Newham Take Eight Medals in a Weekend!

Teagan Williams-Stewart and Georgia Silk (still only cadets) took gold and bronze respectively at the Newcastle U20 Fencing Tournament, whilst Rachel Shaw and Alice Campbell came 7th and 9th respectively. The ages of these talented fencers range from 15 to 18!

Congratulations also to Khalam Contractor who took gold in the U11 Boys Category at the Camden LPJS and who later added the bronze in the U13 Boys! This a fantastic result for someone fencing in the next age group up! Well Done Khalam!

And it didn’t end there! On the same day Lauren Ryder-Garcia and Sophie Tsang took Silver and Bronze in the U13 Girls at the Camden LPJS, and Mohammed Belbouab and Jagroop each took a Bronze in the U9 Boys at the Camden LPJS, taking our medal haul to eight! Well done Teagan, Georgia, Khalam, Lauren, Sophie, Mohammed and Jagroop!!
