Charlotte North American Cup
We have 3 fencers competing in the Charlotte North American Cup, Coach Gerhard, Isabelle Guevarra, and Andrew Wiggs. However, it is free and open to the public, so we encourage everyone to stop by, cheer on your teammates, watch some great fencing, and maybe purchase some equipment!
The Charlotte North American Cup will also feature Division 1 Championship where you can watch some previous Olympians competing. The event occurs from April 21-24. Coach, Isabelle, and Andrew will all be competing Sunday morning, April 24, 2022 starting at 8AM.
If you want to see Olympians:
Division 1 Men’s Foil: Friday, April 22, 2022, starts at 8AM. They usually try to announce the time of the finals, but they haven’t yet.
People to watch: Alexander Massialas, Gerek Meinhardt, Nick Itkin, Miles Chamley-Watson
Division 1 Women’s Foil: Friday, April 22, 2022, starts at 1PM. They usually try to announce the time of the finals, but they haven’t yet.
I currently don’t see any prior Olympians registered for the Division 1 Men’s Foil Championships.
