Fencing Update

Congratulations to a number of Grosvenor fencers who performed with distinction at the Junior Foil competition held at Sullivan Upper on Saturday 18th January.

The keenly contested event saw Form Five pupil Gareth Reid secure an impressive gold medal whilst David Eve, form three, achieved silver and Rose Gilmore a bronze.  In addition Michael Reid and Luke Wallace were unfortunate to just miss out on medals.

In addition Jake Wylie, Lower 6th, recently made the journey to Vienna where he competed at his first European competition in the Men’s Sabre category, placing 58th in an elite field of 86. This was an excellent result as the standard is so much higher than that found within the the UK or Ireland.

Well done to Grosvenor’s fencers on their continued success and we wish them the best of luck throughout the remainder of the season.
