Oyster Bay Fencers Earn Gold At Nassau Individual Championship

The Oyster Bay High School Fencing Team had a strong showing at the Nassau County Individual Fencing Championships held on Feb. 3 at Cold Spring Harbor High School.

Oyster Bay High School freshman Luke Kugler won the gold medal in the épée finals during the Nassau County Individual Fencing Championships.

Freshman Luke Kugler and sophomore Gabriella Sherlock came out on top, each winning the Nassau County Individual Championship for their respective fencing discipline.

Kugler earned a gold medal in épée and Sherlock earned gold in foil. After both sustaining injuries earlier in the season – Sherlock tore her hamstring and Kugler suffered a knee injury – this was an impressive achievement for the fencers and was a testament to their hard work and dedication to the sport. The two continued to have a successful season, earning medals in local fencing tournaments such as the annual Brentwood Holiday Tournament. Here, Kugler and Sherlock took home a silver medal in épée and foil, respectively.

Oyster Bay High School sophomore Gabriella Sherlock won the gold medal in the foil finals during the Nassau County Individual Fencing Championships.

The Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District congratulates both fencers on their well-deserved wins, along with their fencing coach John Bruckner and assistant coach Ian Bozsnyak.
