West-Rock foilist and Fencing Academy of Westchester fencer Sylvie Binder won this weekend’s Cadet Women’s World Cup in Tauberbischofsheim, Germany. The Sparkassen Cup is historically one of the most competitive international tournaments for U17 fencers. She was joined on the podium by US teammates Morgan Partridge (2nd), Stefanie Deschner (3rd), and Samantha Viqueira (7th).
Congratulations to team USA, Sylvie, her family, and her coaches Anya Katkova and Slava Grigoriev!
Great credit goes to Anya Katkova and Slava Grigoriev at Fencing Academy of Westchester for helping Sylvie prepare for the tough competition.
