NIA fencers rock the Vango Young Tigers youth competition


(Markham) Nine members of the Niagara Swords fencing club (Brock Fencing Academy) traveled to the Vango Young Tigers fencing competition in Markham, Ontario over the May 7-8th weekend to compete against some of Ontario’s best young fencers.

The medals rolled in throughout the weekend starting Saturday with double bronze in cadet (u17) women’s foil by Mercedes and Trinity Stautland. Followed later that day 2 more medals in cadet (u17) sabre by Burke Willson – gold and Nandana Parahk – bronze. Sunday the medal mania continued with Karl Stang claiming bronze in U15 Men’s Epee.

We are exceptionally proud of all the performances by Niagara Swords fencers at this event. This has been an exceptional year for Niagara Swords/Brock Fencing Academy, throughout the season our fencers have claimed 35 medals over 13 events we’ve attended.

Great job everyone!
