GFA 7th Grader Qualified For National Fencing Tournament

Greens Farms Academy seventh grader Aria Brown, pictured at right along with her coach Alex Sourimto, had a big showing in a fencing tournament this past weekend.

Brown placed third out of 85 participants in the saber competition during the 2024 Region 3 Winter Thrust Tournament held at the Rockland Community College in Suffern, N.Y. The tournament was both a Regional Youth Circuit event and a Regional Junior and Cadet Circuit tourney.

While Brown will continue to compete in the Region 3 tournaments to garner points for her rankings, she has already qualified for the 2024 summer nationals for Y14 (Under 14), Cadet (Under 16) and Junior (Under 19) divisions. This year's nationals will be in Columbus, Ohio, from June 29-July 8. 

Brown trains with the Manhattan Fencing Center in New York City.
