Year 8 pupil Nicole Saunders is now competing at ‘open age’ Fencing Competitions, as she is over 13. Her first competition was in Liverpool where she finished 35 out of a very strong field of senior GBR Fencers. Her second was at Lancaster University where she finished top of her first poole and second in her second poole.  These results seeded her second for the direct eliminations resulting in a bye. Nicole finished in overall 3rd position (bronze medal), which is a fantastic achievement.
