Congratulations go to our international fencers who after a very strong season have been selected to compete for Great Britain at the European Championships in Slovenia in March.
In the Under 17 sabre Jamie Craze, Caitlin Maxwell and Maria Chart will be leading the team and for the Under 20 selection Will Deary, Yvonne Chart, Caitlin Maxwell and Maria Chart will all be competing.
The selection of five of our fencers is more than any other club or school in the country and it is goes to highlight the talent of our younger fencers.
Caitlin and Maria, who whilst still in the 5th Year, are ranked as GB numbers 1 and 2 at Under 17 and Under 20 levels. Jamie Craze is ranked 4th in GB at Under 17 men’s sabre. Will Deary is ranked 1st in GB at Under 20 men’s sabre and Yvonne Chart is ranked 1st at Under 20 women’s foil.
Truro School dominates the GB ranking lists domestically but also internationally Caitlin Maxwell is ranked 7th in Europe at Under 17 level, with Maria ranked 14th. These European Championships will be a fine test for our fencers.
