Fioretto juniors excelled this year in the National U15 and U17 championships. 6 of our juniors took part, all U15 athletes, and no one came home empty handed. Our 2 U15 women's foilist made the VIC A foil team after solid personal performances, and helped the team to Silver against Singapore in the Teams comp final. The men's foilists and epeeists were not to be out done either!

The Fencing Victoria Schools League Championship came to the grand finale at the beginning of August. Fioretto boys and girls have been taking part throughout the series. Most notably in the Jnr Secondary Foil division. This division has been dominated throughout the season by Nathan M, with 4 straight victories, but also closely backed up by training partners Josh and William. The running joke this year has been the consistancy of their podium finishes. 4 times in a row. Nathan 1, Josh 2 and William 3. This set up Nathan in a position where only a disaster could rob him of the title, but true to form the boys battled it out in the last round, and for once the results got varied: William 1, Nathan 2 and Josh 3. Nathan took the Jnr Secondary Foil title for 2015 in confident style. Well done Nathan, and well done boys.
