Salle D'Asaro at 2012 Summer Nationals
2012 US Fencing Summer Nationals
Monday was a Salle D'Asaro filled day in Anaheim at the US Summer Nationals winding up with a Gold Medal for Taylor Walsh, 17, in the Div. 2 Woman's Saber event. Taylor had a great first round pool going 5-1 losing only to teammate Madalyn Macarr. After the first round Maddie was seeded 2nd and Taylor 7th. Two fencers from the same pool seeded into the top 10! Neither girl lost a bout, or was even close. Until they met again to make the top 4. Taylor came out the victor this time beating Maddie 15-13. Nobody had come that close to her all day on her way to the gold medal bout where she defeated Jenifer Nolab from Boston 15-10 to win the event. Maddie took 5th. Two women in the top 8 of a national event. Not to bad for a club that's been open 2 months!
All this on the heels of a 3rd place for Lydia Fabry in the Vet 50 Women's Saber category earning her a spot on the Veterans World Team. And followed by a second place medal for Francesca Fedorovsky on Friday's Y-12 Women's Saber event.
Stay tuned for more hardware updates.
GO TEAM D!!!!!!!!!
