First Place for Queen Anne’s Fencer Abby
Monday 14th November 2016
Abby Rogers entered the U18 Foil competition for Beds, Bucks, & Oxfordshire the weekend before last.
The foil is one of three weapons used in the sport of fencing. During duels, points are scored by touching the point of the blade on the adversary’s torso.
As there was a small number of entries in the Adult and U18 categories, they were combined for the first round with Abby winning 5 out of 7 of her fights, placing her as the top female going into Direct Elimination.
She went on to win both of her Direct Elimination fights, achieving 1st place for U18 girls Foil.
