On February 10, the Queensland Fencing Association (QFA) held their annual awards dinner to celebrate the achievements of the State’s fencing community.
We are very happy to announce that Amelie Wilson (Year 9) won 1st place for U13 Women’s Foil for 2017. She also achieved 3rd place ranking in U15 and U17 Women’s Foil. These rankings are based on points earned by competing in QFA events during the year that range from school and age group through to open level competitions.
Amelie also won the award for QFA best newcomer of the year as this was her first full year of competition. This result was also a fantastic achievement for her as there is a strong pool of very talented new fencers coming out of the Brisbane fencing clubs. Well done Amelie!
