Regina Chen, Gr. 8, took the silver medal in the Youth-14 women’s sabre event at the Super Youth Circuit tournament held at the San Jose Convention Center in late March. The second place finish earned her national points and qualified her to fence in the Summer National Championships in July in the Y14WS bracket.
Chen stands fourth in the adjusted Bay Cup rankings for Y14WS and also fences in Regional Youth Circuit events. She also earned the gold medal in the Central California Division Senior (adult) Women’s Div 2 and 3 Summer National qualifier in late February, earning an E-10 rating. Ratings start at E and climb to A; Chen was previously unrated (U). She is now qualified to fence as a senior in both Division 2 (C-rated and under) and Division 3 (D-rated and under) WS events. Chen trains at Cardinal Fencing Club on the Stanford University campus.
