Two members of the UCT Fencing Club were placed at the South African Junior National championships held at Fish Hoek High School on 22 and 23 March.
Roger Fok came in at an impressive second place for the Junior Men's Foil. Mcedisi Jekwa (better known as Junior), who has been fencing for only a year, won all his preliminary bouts and eventually landed himself the fifth position for Men's Epee.
Three other UCT fencers; David Xu, Bruna Galvao and Julian Smith, also participated in the event and displayed some brilliant fencing skills.
Over the last few weeks the UCT XV sides have had mixed results in their encounters with Kuilsriver and Bellville-Tech.
The UCT 1st XV suffered their first defeat of the season on 5 April when they lost against Kuils River. The team could not convert their opportunities into points and lost the match 24-29. Kuils River scored four tries against UCT's three.
The second and third sides both won their encounters that weekend by 24-3 and 10-3 respectively.
The weekend of April 12 was a much better outing for UCT teams with the first and second XVs trouncing their Bellville-Tech counterparts 24-14 and 24-7 respectively. The third XV tied their game 7-7.
Rory Mathew, debutant for the first XV had a good game and scored a great try.
