Cutting Edge Fencing’s Caroline Whitehead won a bronze medal in U-17 women’s sabre yesterday at the Commonwealth Championships in Newcastle England. The 16-year-old won 5 of 7 bouts in the preliminary round and was ranked 6th heading into the direct elimination rounds. Receiving a bye into the top 16, Whitehead went on to defeat fellow Canadian Laurie-Ann Lamothe from Montreal by a score of 15-10 and Erin Corcaran of Wales 15-9, before losing in the semi-finals to Elsie Llewellyn from Scotland. This is Whitehead’s first ever international medal. 

 


We are now accepting registrations for all of our winter session programs. Beginner programs will begin the week of January 15th. See our programs page for more info.

 


Cutting Edge Fencing came away with two medals at the 2017 RMC Invitational Team competition held this past weekend at the KMCSC. Our women’s sabre team of Caroline Whitehead, Danielle Burghgraef, Esther Falkson & Marie-Christine Alamy took the silver medal after a close 45-44 loss to the University of Western Ontario in the final. In men’s epee, the team of Dani Mansour, Dashel Hutson, Oscar Hand & Zaq Quinsey earned the bronze after a close loss to the eventual gold medallists from Ottawa Fencing in the semi-final and a win versus Carleton University in the bronze medal match.
