State Individuals Crowned

At the end of the NJSIAA fencing season, there are six new state champions. It was an exciting day at Montgomery High School as the following high school athletes topped the podium: Gabe Canaux (boys epee), Amy Tong (girls epee), George Haglund (boys foil), Sarah Pak (girls foil), Alex Gorloff (boys saber), and Francesca Russo (girls saber). In true dramatic fashion, the Boys Epee event ended with a three-way tie for 1st a fence-off for the title. Boys Foil and Girls Saber also had a two-way fence-off for the gold. All of the competitors should be really proud of their performances and for qualifying for this intense competition. Although only one person can win, each touch is a small victory in itself. Good luck to the seniors in their endeavors and now it’s time to start training for next season. 🙂
