2005 was a good year. The quality
of fencing was high and we had the largest number of girls
taking part so far. That I was pleased with.
The two semi finals of the boys was won
8-10 & 9-10. Luke Deamer beating Ben Saunders and Esessien
Esssien beat Ben Middleton. All so very close. The finals
was no less exciting. The score went to 9-9 before Luke finally
managed to overcome Esessien.
In the girls semifinals
Teresa Norejko from Llandovery College had
the job of beating seed no.2 from The Academy Chloe McClay.
She managed that with a uphill struggle all the way to the
last hit to win 10-9. In the other semifinal Clara Tanner
could not match the speed of Virginia Ambrosio of the Academy.
The last won with a comfortable 10-5 score. Virginia Still
had plenty to give against Teresa in the finals. Teresa just
out of a 10-9 fight could not put up any fight
against Virginia who took revenge for her team mate chloe
Eight medals were on offer Below is the medals table according
to club gains:
As you can see even on club level there was a
strong challenge to the medals. The organisation of the day
went all too well. The only hitch that could be reported was
from security alarm test.
The event started 9:45 and the finals was at
3:00pm. Many thanks to the scores of helpers, parents and referees.
The event went ever so smoothly because of their dedication
and professional conduct. I am confident that 2006 will even
be a bigger challenge and will bring more children over.
