2019 Interschool Transition Year Fencing Championship Results.

The Transition Year (TY) in Irish Schools is designed as a year of personal growth and development rather than academic achievement. This year TY students travelled from all over Ireland to compete in their very first fencing competition. The teams represented schools where fencing is taught to all students as part of their sporting curriculum and competitors had all received a short series of lessons from their fencing instructor.

For individuals to travel so far and represent their schools using skills that have only recently been acquired represents a real spirit of adventure and is a credit to all competitors.

Matches were randomly assigned, and the competition was held over two rounds of Italian relay, a format where teams of 3 fence each other to 45 hits.

The overall winners:
Boys
1. St Vincent’s Castleknock College
2. St Peters Community School
3. Glenstal Abbey School

Girls
1. St Peters Community College
2. Mount Sackville Secondary School
3. Dunamase College

Congratulations to everyone who took part !
