George Bonner Middle School student Aden Nettleton, 11, attended a youth fencing tournament with Salle la Fleche in Port Moody Sunday.

Nettleton narrowly missed the gold medal by one hit, gaining silver in the Y12 sabre event.  He also collected the bronze medal in Y14 sabre and placed fifth in the cadet category.

Nettleton’s determination and sportsmanship throughout the tournament were exemplary.

Island Oak High School students and Salle la Fleche fencers Christofer Lampson and Jaiwei Wu won joint bronze medals in cadet sabre.

Meanwhile, Salle la Fleche hosts its fourth-annual Valentine’s tournament Saturday at the Si’em Lelum gym.

The youth event runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon, the senior foil from noon till 1:30 p.m., the senior sabre from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and the senior epee from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Events need six fencers.
