Milford CT, May 25, 2017 -- Law Principal Fran Thompson and Athletic Director VJ Sarullo presented the 2017 Annual Fencing Club Championship Trophy to tournament winner and senior Allie Hessberger last week at Jonathan Law High School. Ending the team’s best season ever, the Milford Combined High School Fencing Team held its final tournament of the year in March. After 42 hard-fought bouts, the women’s foil championship was won by Law senior Allie Hessberger, followed by Foran’s Arshia Puri in second and Sydney Messey in third. In the men’s division, Senior and team captain Andrew Hiza narrowly defeated Foran freshman Matthew Rothchild 15-14, with senior Troy Gallipolli taking third. Hessberger also took the State Novice Epee Tournament Championship earlier in the season. Coach Mark Kissinger congratulated every team member for displaying the highest levels of sportsmanship all season, and is already looking forward to building on this year’s success.
