Truro School Fencers compete for GB in the Under 20’s Team in Bulgaria

Last weekend, 6 Truro School fencers (Jenna Bray, Caiti Maxwell, Maria Chart, Lily Wood, Jamie Craze, and Nick Howes) competed for the GB under 20 team in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. In the team event in the las 16 the girls ruled over Italy (who have the world number 1, 2 and 5) by 45 points to 32! They then went on to beat Mexico (a team which included one Olympian) by 45 points to 33. They then lost 45-36 to world number 1 Russia (which was closest match the Russians had all day). Finally they narrowly lost 45-44 to the USA (current world number 2) in the bronze medal fight, finishing 4th overall. The boys also did extremely well taking clean wings again Canada, Poland and Hungary to finish 5th overall.
