Ali Shafaie captained the team to a victory over Homewood FC 45-30 and we lost to the eventual silver medalists 45-27 in the table of 16. Elena Vona fenced in Y14, Cadet, and Div2 Foil. Elena went undefeated in her Div2 pool, but lost a tight bout in the round of 64. We also had Anika Patel fence in Cadet, Junior, and Div2 Foil where she worked very hard and got several victories. Nick Reznick fenced in Y14 and Cadet Foil, where he picked up several victories, including a 15-4 win in the Y14 DEs.
