East of Ireland Open, 2011

DUFC’s series of impressive performances in the various open events on the Irish calendar continued in Belfield at the East of Ireland Open where the squad took home three first place finishes, two second places and four third places!

In the Women’s Foil event, Anna Smith went one better than last year by winning the final. Her impressive fencing meant she was rarely challenged on a day that also saw DUFC’s Viviane Brefort and Maria Treacy finish 8th and 11th respectively. Women’s Sabre saw another DUCF triumph with Liz Fitzgerald returning in style from a semester away in Spain to add the East of Ireland crown to the National Championship she picked up last year. DUFC Women’s Captain, Helen Naddy, also continued her impressive season by adding reaching another semi final. There were more medals for Trinity in the Women’s Epee event where Tal Coyle beat clubmate Kate Cunningham in the semi final before losing a tight final to the experienced Fiona Haldane. Club President, Rory Greenan, achieved his best ever result by reaching the Last 8 of the Men’s Epee competition where he was unlucky to lose out to Eoghan Cregan in a tense match.

It was in the Men’s Sabre event that DUFC really shined, however, as our fencers filled each and every of the top five positions on the results. In the all-Trinity semifinals Chris Mills overturned a sizeable deficit to beat Jack McHugh while Jean-Baptiste Muller did the same against Rodrigo Gonzalez. So close was the competition between our fencers that both semifinals as well as the final, between Chris and Jean-Baptiste, went to 14-14! In the end, it was Chris Mills who won out to take his first Open title at the expense of Jean-Baptiste.
