Fencing – Derry Open 2013

Congratulations to a number of Grosvenor fencers who achieved notable success at the 2013 Derry Open, held at Foyle and Londonderry College over the weekend of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November.

In the Men’s Foil competition Upper 6th pupil Stephen Brown secured an impressive silver medal following a narrow 15-14 defeat in the final while Tony Eve, also Upper 6th, was placed third after losing 15-13 to Stephen in a close-fought semi-final!  In addition impressive performances were recorded by fifth formers Gareth Reid, who finished in 6th position, as well as Stewart McClune, who was placed 11th.

Elsewhere Samuel Gourley (Lower 6th) finished 15th out of 32 competitors in the Men’s Epee while Jake Wylie (Upper 6th) achieved 14th position out of 32 fencers in the Men’s Sabre.

Well done to all of Grosvenor’s competitors at the event and we wish them continued success over the remainder of the season.
