Fencers to attend Junior Olympics

Jack Goldfisher

Five students qualified for the Junior Olympic Fencing Championships in Baltimore, Maryland Feb. 15-18. Jack Graham ’15, Anne Kim ’15, Sophie Kupiec-Weglinski ’15, Jake Raynis ’14 and Justin Yoo ’15 all qualified for the tournament.

The fencers, some of whom are members of the Harvard-Westlake fencing team and some of whom practice with the Los Angeles International Fencing Center privately, will compete at the Baltimore Convention Center in various disciplines of fencing: Epee, Saber, and Foil.

“I’m really scared,” Kupiec-Weglinski said, “it will be my first huge out of state tournament. It’s a lot of pressure, but I just want to do the best I can.”
