Megan’s First Sanctioned Event
Yesterday I competed at the Junior Olympics Qualifying Tournament in Durham. It was my first sanctioned event so it was really different from what I was used to.
After the pools ended I was sitting at 3 wins and 3 losses. When elimination started I fenced a girl who had been in the junior olympics before first. I had beat her initially in the pools 5-3, but unfortunately she won in elimination against me 15-8.
Overall, it was a great experience and I’m glad I had the opportunity to go and do as well as I did.
