Cadets Skip Turkey, Earn Gold
 
While most of us were enjoying turkey dinners, US Under-17 fencers were toiling in Europe. Two brought home gold as rewards for giving up their holiday dinners. Six others reached the top eight in very large fields of some of the best age-group fencers in the world.
 
Eli Dershwitz (15, Sherborn, Mass./Zeta Fencing) won the Cadet International tourney in Moscow, Russia Nov. 27. Teammates Christopher Ahn (16, Houston, Texas/Bayou City Fencing) and Kaito Streets (16, Redwood City, Calif./ Hristov-Csikany Fencers) took seventh and eighth. It was a fantastic result for the US to place three in the top eight in what is the home of one of what is historically one of the most storied saber programs in the world.
 
Meanwhile, in Germany, US cadet women’s foil fencers enjoyed similar success. Jacqueline Dubrovich (16, Riverdale, N.J./ Gutkovskiy Fencing) won the Cadet International in Tauberbischoffsheim, Germany and Mona Shaito (16, Riverdale, Texas/Fencing Inst. Texas) took silver. Sabrina Massialas (13, San Francisco, Calif./Massialas), one of the youngest competitors in the gym, placed seventh.
 
In France, Nina Van Loon (16, Boulder, Colo./No. Colo. Fencers) won bronze at a Cadet International women’s epee cup in Grenoble, and Jessica O’Neill-Lyublinsky (16, North Salem, N.Y./Fenc. Acad. Westchester) placed eighth. Brian Ro (16, Scarsdale, N.Y./Empire United) and Alexander Eldeib (15, Burke, Va./Prince William Fencing) placed seventh and eighth at a Cadet International men’s epee cup in Chalons.
 
Kudos are also long overdue to US juniors who traveled to Luxembourg during the same week as the World Championships. Mona Shaito won silver there at the  Junior “A” Women’s Foil and Margaret Lu (16, Greenwich, Conn./Empire United) won bronze. Jeremy Goldstein (18, Westport, Conn./Fenc. Acad. Westchester/PSU) won bronze at the Junior Men’s Foil “A” there that same weekend.
