Fencing: Local Athletes Stay Sharp in Competitions

Fencers from the Presidio Fencing Club, the UCSB fencing team and a high school league finish strong.

Two fencers from Presidio Fencing Club were finalists at the Jerry Steiner Memorial Foil event on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Keric Moore won the event, coming back from a six-point deficit in the gold medal match to re-earn his “C” rating with the U.S. Fencing Association. Zach Danko finished eighth out of a field of 24 and re-earned his “E.”

On Sunday, members of the UCSB fencing team attended a tournament in Fullerton.

Ken Coleman, captain of the mens saber squad, won the saber event to re-earn his “C” rating. Zephyr McIntyre placed seventh in the tournament to earn his “E” rating.

In the local high school fencing league, Presidio fencer Cameron Westbury placed third in a field of 61 athletes at the first foil tournament of the 2008-09 season, held at Monroe High School in Los Angeles at the end of September.

Westbury is a senior at Laguna Blanca High School. Other Presidio athletes in attendance were Keric Moore, a junior at San Marcos High School (10th place), and Parker Olson, a freshman at Dos Pueblos High (36th place).

Leslie Robinson represents the Presidio Fencing Club.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
