Jared fenced superbly at the Hampshire Sabre competition this Sunday, 5 February, and claimed the title of this year’s men’s champion.
Jared started off with mixed results in the poules, but got stronger and stronger during the competition. On his way to the final he had to beat Mark ‘Dicky’ Barton who was the top seed and proving to be very awkward as he cut a swathe through the opposition. Jared, however, stopped him in his tracks, showing a great repertoire of different hits to beat Dicky with ease.
In the final, Jared was up against Carl Morris, his fellow Seacourt clubmate. The final was a tense affair, with both fencers giving their all, but Jared probably the fencer with more energy. Despite Carl putting up a great fight, Jared managed to beat him and claim the title of Hampshire Men’s Sabre Champion for the first time.
Well done boys – you were all fab!
