Xavier Club de Escrime standouts gained top honors in the 4th Philippine Cadet Fencing Championships held last 12 August 2006 at the Philippine Amateur Fencing Association(PAFA) Fencing Hall in Philsports Pasig.
Michel Alain Niccolo Tan(G6G) mounted a come-from behind finish and emerged champion in the Foil 13 – Under Division edging out 6 opponents in the finals. While Jason Friedlander(G4C) dominated the Foil 10 – Under Division also finishing with a golden performance.
Fencing was introduced to Xavier students through the G7 to H4 Physical Education Program and the opening of the Xavier Club de Escrime in June last year. Head Coach Sam Herrera was excited about the success of our fencers in the tournament. With its program reaping very good results this early, Xavier will definitely be producing top fencers in the coming years.
Sisters Patricia(G4) and Isabelle(G2) Paolo, both students of ICA and members of the Xavier Club de Escrime, garnered silver and bronze medals respectively in the 10 – Under Division.
Congratulations to our fencers!
