South Denver Fencing Academy athletes competed in the Nick Toth Open at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs last weekend, October 1-2. The Nick Toth is an annual NCAA pre-season event for the Air Force Academy Fencing team. Our fencers competed in Youth 14 Mixed Epee, Youth 14 Mixed Foil, Cadet Foil, Senior Men’s Epee, and Senior Women’s Foil.
Ari Simmons won the Senior Men’s Epee Event and Katarina Roloff finished third in Senior Women’s Foil. Wesley Reid also competed in his first event ever, fencing in Youth 14 Epee and Foil. Elynor Sykes, Matthew Peterson, Bennett Nofziger, and Jayden Lee rounded out the rest of the SDFA team.

The SDFA Youth fencers will be back in action this weekend, October 9-10, at South Denver Fencing Academy in the first Regional Youth Circuit event of the year. Unfortunately due to Covid-19, we cannot host extra spectators in the club at this time. Hopefully by the beginning of January we will be able to lift our spectator restrictions to allow club members to come watch and support our fencers!
