Saber (l-r) 3rd, Dennis Stephen, DFA, 2nd, David Moran, South Coast Fencing Center, 1st, Costa Nichols, DFA and he earned his "E" 2018 saber rating!











Dennis fences foil and epee.  He’s been taking saber lessons since September 2017.  He did fence saber in our Division qualifier for Summer Nationals and did qualify in saber, as well as foil and epee.  The February tournament was the first time Dennis fenced saber in an open tournament in our Division.  Not bad, Dennis!





Our 2018 Men’s Foil & Epee Team: (l-r), Kamin Morrelli, R2 (visiting from college), Dennis Stephen, Reese Frenter, Ronan Joyce, Ashton Arrington and Paul Zappia.

Wishing everyone a happy March and St. Patrick’s Day..and, as always…blissful fencing (with the luck of the Irish!).
