CAPITAL Cadets Shine at the European Circuit Cup

Capital fencers Alessandro Contreras and Honor Johnson delivered amazing performances as members of the US team in last week’s European Cadet Cup in Moedling, Austria. More than 370 men and women fencers ages 16 and under represented 27 nations at this highly competitive event. Honor, with focus, commitment, and skill, fenced her way to earn the 8th place medal for the Unites States. Outstanding! Her CAPITAL clubmate Alessandro Contreras battled his way through the men’s challenging field of 173 international fencers to take the 20th spot. He and his dad celebrated by visiting the Louvre in Paris. Nice! Congratulations and BRAVO to Honor and Alessandro for representing CAPITAL and US fencing so brilliantly!
