Summer National Qualifiers are underway at the Fencing Academy of Westchester, in Hawthorne, NY.
Congratulations to our first medalists on the day: men’s saber fencers Zachary Hoffman (gold), Benjamin Schlur (silver), and John Fantana (bronze)
After a long season of domestic and international events West-Rock fencer Sylvie Binder qualified for her second Cadet World Championships this year and also earned a berth on the Junior team. She will represent the US in France in April.
The 16 year old Armonk native and member of the Fencing Academy of Westchester is running a “Rally Me” campaign that will help her family join her in France and raise money for the United Nations Human Rights Office.
