Many congratulations to Kate Daykin continuing her terrific form in 2017 by winning the Glasgow Open.  She won 10 preliminary bouts and all her direct elimination bouts, culminating in a tense and dramatic 15-13 win over club-mate SJ Hampson.  In third place, Lucy Higham demonstrated how much progress she has made in the last 6 months.   In the senior men’s event, 14 yr old Sam Freeman surprised everyone by winning the bronze medal, with Ewan Robertson making it in the the last 8 by beating team mate Paul Vaughan 15-13 in the last 16 round.

Despite a busy academic programme at Herriot Watt University, Kate is now ranking no.2 on the Great Britain national rankings and is currently the top ranked GB fencer in the world.
