NAC Bronze for Lynn Botelho!

Lest everyone think that our Junior Olympic fencers are the only ones tearing up the fencing strip:

Congratulations to Lynn Botelho, who won the Bronze Medal in the Veteran (40 and over) North American Cup foil event in Atlanta March 9-12!  This was a very strong event, where the top 8 consisted of 1 A-rated fencer, 4 Bs and 3 Cs.

Lynn also made the finals of the Division II Foil event, finishing 5th - another great finish.  Way to go, Lynn!
