Year 7 fencer does Sydenham High proud

On Sunday 6 May, our year 7 fencer, Lyla, finished 32nd at the British Youth Championships. The competition was held at the English Institute for Sport and she was competing against many top fencers. Her aim was to finish in the top half, which she achieved. We are very proud of what she achieved to get this far and how well she did to perform at such a high level. Lyla had some tough fights, which were very close, and in the end she went out in the Direct Elimination, 10-8,  to the person who finished 10th.

We look forward to seeing what the next tournament has in store. Well done Lyla!
