MN State Fencing Tournament
For grades 7-12
THIS IS A NON-YEL EVENT. This tournament is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School Fencing League. YEL is a member of this, but this is not a YEL event.
* Fully electronic gear is required. See below for more details.
* Fencers are put into pools for the first few rounds. Then they are seeded based on pool play. Then the Direct Elimination (DE) rounds begin. DE rounds mean that fencers may be eliminated upon losing any match.
* Fencers fence with their school on Saturday (i.e. Lakeville North, Lakeville South, as opposed to Lakeville). On Sunday, qualifying fencers and teams compete as clubs. In other words, all YEL fencers may compete as a team on Sunday.
* Events include: Men’s Foil, Women’s Foil; Men’s Epee, Women’s Epee; Men’s Sabre, Women’s Sabre.
