Cadel Henry (Youth 12 Saber) was our Season Priority on Youth Points Winner. Cadel participated in all 5 of our tournament dates, and his top 4 results went towards his winning point total of 680 points. Athletes who participated in at least 4 of the 5 tournament weekends earned a spot on the prize table list. The top points winner gets to choose an item from the prize table first, and then each athlete on the final ranking follows in order. Prizes this year included the famous “Mystery Box,” along with fencing weapons, masks, body cords, fencing books, and more.

Thank you to the 106 athletes from across North Carolina who participated in this tournament series. This season was a resounding success, and we look forward to continuing our tradition of supporting Youth Fencing Development in NC.
