Milford fencing team celebrates success

Foran High Principal Max Berkowitz and Athletic Director Anthony Vitelli presented the 2015 annual Fencing Club Championship Trophy to tournament winners Madeline Turiano and Andrew Hiza last week at Foran High.

Ending a banner second season of competition, the Milford Combined High School fencing team held its final tournament of the year in March at Jonathan Law.

After 35 hard-fought bouts, the women’s championship was won by Foran senior Turiano, followed by Foran senior Michaela Smith taking the silver medal, and Foran junior Amanda Shaw winning the bronze.

In the men’s division, sophomore Hiza narrowly defeated senior Matt Jason in a rematch of last year’s final to take the Men’s 2015 Championship, with Jason taking the silver and Foran junior Steven Boynton taking the bronze.

Coach Mark Kissinger congratulated every team member for displaying the highest levels of sportsmanship all season, and is already looking forward to building on this year’s success.
