Salle La Fleche fencer Rigg earns two bronze medals at provincials
Nothing could foil local Salle La Fleche and other Island fencers from obtaining top-notch results in the B.C. Fencing provincials held at the Richmond Oval.
Andrew Rigg, who lives in Nanaimo but fences with the Salle La Fleche group in Duncan, achieved the highest club placing with bronze medals in both Y12 and Y14 sabre.
Just missing the medals was Neav Murphy-Williams with a fifth-place finish.
Shiming Huang from Duncan finished eighth in both the cadet foil and junior (U21) mixed foil while Island rival Isaac Carter-Hughes from Victoria CCFC placed third in cadet foil and fifth in the junior mixed foil events ahead of him.
“All fencers had fun and look forward to the next season of fencing,’’ noted Salle La Fleche’s Georgia Newsome.
