UGA Tournament -- Quite a win!

This Saturday we caravanned up to Athens, GA, the nest of the evil ones themselves (hah). On arrival, we promptly trashed them in Saber, winning 4 of 4 matches. Foil, the main event for our novice men and women, showed a much greater range of success and failure, but in the end, we prevailed, handily defeating all but 3 matches out of 8. Our novices showed their acumen by defeating UGA novices with little effort, and I personally showed my fail by nearly losing to one, finishing the bout 5-3.

Jordan Herin rocked our entire team over and over. Ow. Whatajerk.

Eric defending our honor against Herin in the final foil match. We lost at an agonizing 45-42.

Unfortunately, our epee team consists of two Epeeists, a potato, and an empty coke can... so we had to improvise. We managed to make two teams by using saberists, foilists, and a bit of can-do attitude. We handily won 3 out of 4 matches thanks to the beneficence of Herin in not joining in the melee.

The end of the tournament came, and we wandered off to a Mexican food place. Noms were had by all, as well as bonding and friendship. Our next meeting on the battlefield against our archrivals u[sic]ga will occur in November, at the (for serious) South Atlanta Conference, where we'll put our pride on the line to defeat them for reals.

Until then, we'll be putting up pictures and traveling about. So stay tunes for further adventures of the Yellow Jacket Fencing Club.

P.S. Come back to practice, Epeeists. Lukas is getting bored fencing the potato.
