A gold and Silver for Ellie Taylor and Rachael Lever in the Under 12 girls with Ellie winning the first EEJS gold in the clubs history. Full write up to follow.
Our Under 11 Girls stole the show at this very strong event by taking the top 2 spots with Ellie Taylor beating Rachael Lever in the final. Rachael had a really tough draw in the knock-outs having had a difficult poule round and had to beat Messina Herrling (number 1 seed) in the quarter finals, followed by Henriette Hadalin in the semi-finals (10-9 final score). Maisie McCormack also fenced well, however after her 2nd place at Event 1, succumbed to a very focused Ellie Taylor in the Quarter-finals to place 7th. On their first competitions Lauren Eke placed 10th and Ellie Tinsley 12th with encouraging performances.
