USA Fencing’s Summer Nationals/July Challenge were held in San Jose, California this year. Zeta Fencing set 23 fencers, and 6 of them returned with a national medal. We are especially proud of placing three fencers in the top 16 of a Division 1 competition (see photo), and of our new Division 3 National Champion Garrett Tordo. Congratulations to all medalists!
For some of our fencers, this was the first national tournament of their fencing career. You all did great and we look forward to many more successful national tournaments with you!
