2018 Summer Nationals

Two SoCal fencers made the top 8 in the Junior Men’s Epee event at the 2018 Summer Nationals: Stephen Ewart (top row, 2nd from right) won the gold, and Stafford Moosekian (bottom row, far right) finished 8th (out of 324 competitors).

SoCal fencers returned from this year’s Summer Nationals in St. Louis (June 28–July 7, 2018) having won 30 medals in the individual events, including 2 golds: Alexander Jeffords (Div III Men’s Saber), and Stephen Ewart (Junior Men’s Epee). This marks the fourth gold medal that Stephen has won in National events this season. A remarkable achievement!

The SoCal Division would like to offer a special recognition to Men’s Epee fencer Stafford Moosekian, who medaled in Junior Men’s Epee, Cadet Men’s Epee, and Y14 Men’s Epee, earning his ‘A18’ a total of three times!

In addition, LAIFC fencers had a terrific showing in the team events, constituting 2-1/2 of the teams that achieved top-3 finishes.
