Yorkshire Champion and junior medals too.
A last second lunge saw Harrogate fencer Karina Calderon Brown win the Yorkshire Foil title on Saturday (24th February) after a long day of competition at the York Railway Institute. Finishing second after the two pools, Karina fenced Kim de Large from Louth in the final. Karina was 4-7 down going into the last period and with seconds to go she managed to tie at 10-10. With her opponent having the advantage in the priority minute Karina left it late again and scored the winning lunge with two seconds left.
In the under 14s competition both Kira Grahamslaw and Nathan Mooney came away with bronze medals in their respective age groups.
Well done everyone. A great and very successful days fencing…..
