Medals at Herts Team Championship 2018

Watford won medals galore last weekend at the Herts Team Championship  competition in Hatfield. We entered two teams for foil and one team for épée, and all three teams won a medal!

In foil, Watford A team (made up of Florent, Michael, and Joe) won silver, and Watford B team (made up of Mike, Markos and Hefin) won bronze.

Our épée team (made up of Peter, Robert and Jonathan) took home the gold!

 

Final Results of the Three Counties League

The final results of this season’s Three Counties League are in and, as usual, Watford put on a stellar performance although, like last year, we fell just short of securing an overall victory.

We came first for foil, winning all but one of our team matches overall, and fourth in épée, winning 5 of our team matches and losing 4. This meant that we came second overall for the whole league!

Well done to everyone who fenced for us, and to all the other teams who competed. We will look forward to regrouping and improving on this result this year!
