Athletics

Congrats, MS Ladies Fencing Team!

ATHLETICS—La Jolla Country Day Middle School Ladies Fencing team concluded the trimester undefeated in team tournaments. On Friday, January 23, Ruhi Parikh ’19 placed first in direct elimination. Sofía Islas ’19 and Nikki Nair ’20 occupied third place. The Swashbuckling ladies were joined by beginners Pip Lewis and Elizabeth Thorell, both ’20, who also competed in the electric foil tournament.

Like masters of chess, each member of the team has become keen in predicting the moves of their opponent and performing the countering action. Coach Tedd Padgitt says the LJCDS Ladies Fencing Team has improved tremendously, and he is excited for the team to continue their winning streak next season.
