Gold for QE at first county fencing competition

One QE team won gold medals at the inaugural Hertfordshire School Fencing Championships, while another took silver.

The U13 First team saw off five other teams to take gold and the U15 lead team claimed silver, both in the Foil discipline. The School’s U13 Second team were placed fourth, also in the Foil competition.

All the boys train at the School with coaches coming in from the Paul Davis Fencing Academy (PDFA), who hosted the championships.

Maria-Jose Faustino, who is the Welfare Officer for the PDFA, said: “All the fencers were delighted by their success. They were given their medals at a presentation at the event along with gold and silver school certificates.”

The U13 gold medal-winning team comprised Abdullah Chisti (Year 9), Umer Saad

Rahman (Year 8) and Mrinaank Chilkoti (Year 9). The U15 silver medallists were Ayush Patel, Batu Cakir and Sultan Khokhar, all from Year 9. The U13 second team was made up of Dilan Patel (Year 8), Musab Alam (Year 8) and Ali Chisti.
