Fencing Success

67_Bobby-RashfencingBobby Rash, a pupil in Year 6, took part in the Norfolk County U12 Fencing Championships on Sunday 22nd February. He fought well in the poule rounds, winning four out of his seven fights, putting him in third place going into the direct elimination stages. He then won his next two fights, which saw him qualify for the final, where he fought hard, but ended up just losing out to finish up in second place with a silver medal.

This was a fantastic achievement as it was Bobby’s first official fencing competition; many of his opponents were considerably more experienced. Congratulations to Bobby and to his coach at the Prep School, Paul Stimpson.
