Fun in the sun. Cadet Men’s Epee.
Zander Vazquez (LAIFC) and Graydon Schulze-Kalt (Elite) fight it out in Division II Men’s Foil.
More Division II Men’s Foil action. Zachary Piesner (LAIFC) versus Benjamin Musher (LAIFC).
Aidan Chan (Laguna) versus Arthur Bonifield (AGFC) in the Cadet Men’s Saber event.
Fencing continued as smoke billowed from the Pacific Palisades fire, about 5 miles away. Just another day in California.
