The fencing program has grown in recent years and now supports a varied roster of talented fencers and newcomers to the sport. The coaching staff continues to develop and hone the technical skill, mental agility, bout tactics and strategy for fencers in each of the three weapons: foil, épée and sabre.
Several Bruins earned podium finishes against the finest competition in local, national and international events. Locally, the team faces high-quality opponents from across the FAA and the region.
John Lin took home individual gold in saber competition at the 2019 Connecticut H.S. Fencing Association Championships, while the three-member Brunswick saber team finished in third place at the state team tournament, held at Guilford High School earlier this month.
Brunswick wrapped up the season with a 19-8 setback at Greenwich High School on Tuesday. The shorthanded Bruins won the sabre, but lost both the épée and foil events in their final contest of the season.
Brunswick won a 14-13 decision over Greenwich H.S. in the Camuto Gym on Thursday. The season-opening, one-point victory came down to a decisive 5-4 win by Nicholas Moulle-Berteaux in a foil bout to secure the 14th team point for the Bruins (1-0).
