Additionally, during the day Alex was able to take his Level 2 refereeing practical exam which he passed with flying colours.
Camden Foil Leon Paul Junior Series, 11th/12th October
The club had two fencers entered for this competition and both came away with medals. Darcy Herring-Johnson took second place in the U9 Girls. There were eighteen girls entered. After two sets of poules, she had 9 wins and 1 loss. There were two other girls with the same result, so they went to a three-person barrage for first, second and third places. After playing each other, they all had one win, one loss, so it went to points. Darcy took second and was thrilled! Meanwhile, Heloïse Hardie took the bronze medal in the U15 girls. She was 3rd of the 21 fencers entered after the poules, had a very close victory in the quarter final (7-6 at the end of time) and then lost her semi-final 8-15. Alex Hardie enjoyed reffing and was particularly pleased when, at the end of the day, the organizers presented him with a pay cheque!
