Patrick Webb of Los Alamos finished sixth in the Open Mixed Epee competition at the New Mexico Open last month.
Webb, who competes for Los Alamos Fencing Club, was among the top finishers in Epee, pacing three LAFC participants in the event.
The New Mexico Open, held in Albuquerque, is one of the major fencing events sponsored by United States Fencing Association’s Rocky Mountain Section. In all, 46 Epeeists took part in the open mixed division from all around the southwest.
Following Webb, who advanced to the quarterfinals of direct elimination, Tom Hill was 18th overall and Jack Stafurik finished 42nd.
“This was Patrick’s first major competition since joining LAFC,” said Hill, who coaches the club. “His sixth-place finish at this level of competition turned a lot of heads. He pushed the second-place finisher to the wall before he fell in the quarterfinals.”
Hill and Stafurik also took part in the Veterans Combined Mixed Epee and finished tied for third.
“Jack had his best tournament in ages, fencing with a great deal of energy and reacting well to his opponents’ tactics in every bout,” Hill said.
