No, I’m not being annoyingly repetitive. Caleb won twice in Saturday’s fencing tournament.
He was drafted into competing in the saber competition because they needed a sixth fencer. He enjoys saber, but out of the three fencing weapons, considers it his least favorite.
So he fenced saber. And won.
Now Caleb has a ranking with the U.S. Fencing Association, an E. (USFA rankings are letters from E up to A. You earn them by beating a certain number and rank of other fencers. Beating five fencers earns you an E.)
Next up was the epee competition, in which he used his brand new Italian-grip weapon he received Wednesday in the mail. So with zero experience with his new weapon, he ended up in fifth. (He has two weeks to prepare for a big epee tournament in Michigan.)
But then the last competition was foil, his favorite weapon. Out of eight competitors, he won first place and received an E ranking in that weapon, too.
Congratulations to Caleb for doing so well in his sixth tournament!
