British Schools’ Team Fencing Championship

At Millfield School on 24 February for the British Schools’ Team Fencing Championships, RGS had a fantastic day with all three teams winning gold or silver medals.

In the U18 Foil, the team were once again crowned British Schools champions and successfully defended their title. Xavier and Rishikesh won gold in three successive British Schools’ Team events.

The U15 Foil saw the team place second to last going into direct elimination. However, the team regained their confidence and won convincingly against Marling in the Quarter Final. This was followed by another excellent win against top seed Millfield in the Semi Final. We lost the final to Westminster A.

The U13 Épée team won against Skinners’ (45-41), Millfield (45-30), Hill House Year 7s (45-30), and lost to the champions Hill House Y8s (38-45).
