Congratulations to Loup-Yann Ferre and to Hillary Elliott for their awesome permance at the December 1/2 Ottawa youth tournament.
Lou competed in the cadet category, and fenced well all day. He won 5 out of his 6 bouts in poules to earn a bye in the first round of elimination. He skipped through to the finals with ease, where he faced David Elliott from Ottawa. After being down 7-12, Lou found his tempo to win the bout 15-14, thus winning the tournament of 17 fencers!
Hillary competed in both the cadet and junior categories. In the cadet round, she fenced some tight bouts against her opponents in the poules. In the elimination round she had an exciting bout against Vancamp, winning 15-13. In the semi finals she had a tough opponent in Cindy Gao who she couldn’t beat that day, thus winning the bronze medal!
Lou and Hillary, we are all very proud of your medal wins! Great job!
