Following a successful season competing in fencing, Nicole Saunders managed to keep her rankings high, and as a result of her hard work, was selected for the U17 GBR cadet squad.

Last weekend saw Nicole travel to Meylan in France to compete in the final International fencing competition of the season.

The competition fielded a strong French and Spanish squad; Nicole managed to win one of her games in the poules but was narrowly defeated in her remaining three.  However, she made the cut, so went onto fence a DE against a local fencer, which unfortunately resulted in a 8-15 loss.

Nicole gained a lot from the experience, and is planning to take the newly developed skills to Poland at the end of March, where she will be fencing as part of Team England.
