The 2019 Secondary School Nationals Fencing Championship was hosted by Auckland this year at Mt Albert Grammar School on the 7-8th September. 10 fencers represented Kristin School this year. Top 8 teams were invited to represent their school based on their individual results.
Our new Kristin Girls foil team fenced really well all day bringing hope the silver medal for Kristin. Congratulations to Sophie Shannon (C), Azaria Eddy, Yeon Seo Kim and So Yeon Park for the fantastic result.
In the NZSS individual event, two of our fencers finished in the top 8. This is a great result in a strong competition like NZSS fencing agains all the top fencers from all over New Zealand.
