Re: LPS Schools Individual Fencing Championships 2019

 

Our annual schools competition was once again, generously hosted by Linlithgow Academy on the 23rd and 24th November 2019. Over 100 Scottish pupils travelled from as far afield as Shetland to compete in this, our most prestigious youth fencing competition in Scotland.

 

We were very pleased to see pupils from Linlithgow Academy taking part in the competition and were impressed with their high standard of fencing, behavior and sportsmanship. Please pass on our gratitude to these fencers and to the teaching staff responsible for fencing in your school.

 

The final positions of your pupils are shown below :

Following exceptional performances Eilidh Hall and Calum McGhee  were awarded the Senior Master at arms trophies and Olivia Conolly the Senior Epee trophy. We would love to bring the trophies to your school for them to be presented to them at an assembly in the near future. If you are in agreement, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can arrange to deliver the trophies to you.

 

I am also delighted to report that the combined scores for all of the Linlithgow Academy pupils achievements resulted in the school retaining it's title of Best Girls school and also regaining from Dunblane High school the title of best boys School.

 

Fencing as a sport engenders many of the qualities we strive to encourage in young people. It has been shown to improve self-discipline, confidence and resilience together with reaction time, mental agility, balance and hand-eye co-ordination.

 

 

Kind regards
