Senior Winton 2024 Sunday

Junior Team

The 12th-19th July saw our Cadet & Junior Squad out in Christchurch, NZ for the 2024 Commonwealth Championships.

The cadet squad came together on 10th July, preparing at a local training venue. After 2 training sessions to shake the flight out of the legs and prepare for the event, day 1 of competition saw Thandile Nash in CWF winning 5 of her 6 poule fights to be ranked 5th. She had a bye into the L16, then came up against a strong English fencer, and despite her best efforts and some great fencing, went out 15-10.
