On Sunday 19th May, three individuals from Lambrook made their way to Millfield School in Somerset. Robert Y was competing in his second IAPS Foil competition, although now in the U13 category. Ophelia W competed in her second IAPS Foil U11 competition and Aurelia G competed in her very first fencing competition in the IAPS U11 Foil category. There were around twenty-four competitors in each category and our Lambrook fencers fought extremely well.
Ophelia did brilliantly and managed to come an impressive 14th, closely followed by Aurelia who was awarded 17th position; well done girls!
Robert was a young competitor in the U14 category and he fought bravely against competitors who were much taller. He expertly managed to use his smaller stature to his advantage at times, ducking and diving, and managed a super 12th place, putting him in a great position for next year.
All pupils gained huge experience from the tournament and we are looking forward to next year already!
