Success for Whitgift fencers at the South East Championships

The South East Championships in Sabre took place over this weekend and our boys performed exceptionally well securing 5 medals.

Benjamin Lindsay U18 Silver

Andrew Bonner U18 Bronze

Luke Padmore U16 Gold

Daniel Lindsay U16 Bronze

Adiy Saddiq U12 Bronze

These were the most successful South East Championships in many years in Sabre for Whitgift and I would like to thank our fencing coach, Mr Williams, who is having an excellent impact on our Sabre provisions.

The South East Championships are also the qualifiers for British Youth Championships in Sheffield in May for which all medallists qualify.

Connor Head should also be congratulated on being invited to represent Great Britain in the U20 world Championships. He is part of 3 man team. This is the highest honour that a school boy can achieve.
