The Scottish Secondary Schools Championships were held in Linlithgow on Saturday 25th November 2018. This is one of the largest on the youth calendar and the most prestigious for schools.
In the sabre events, Salle Ossian fencers dominated in all the age groups entered and some fantastic performances from our newer members. Well done to everyone. Our new Scottish Schools Champions 2018 are:
Under 14 girls, Lucia Paul (with her sister Honor taking silver).
Over 14 girls Champion is Charlotte Wilson-Smith.
Special mention in the under 14 boys to Oisin Lyndsay-Dorward, 11, who has been fencing since February and worked incredibly hard all day to take silver medal – punching well above his weight.
The over 14 boys event was won by Rory McLellan, with his team mate Hendrix Knight coming second.
And last but not least, the senior boys event was won in extraordinary style with a very determined 15-0 win by Sam Freeman.
Well done to all the competitors and our thanks go to the organisers, officials and many volunteers who made it a cracking event.
