Islander wins silver at regional fencing event
Jamestown’s Josef Cohen recently represented the Rhode Island Fencing Academy & Club at the Steve Sobel Super Youth Circuit tournament held in Jersey City, N.J. He finished second out of 101 fencers in the saber category for boys 14 years old and under. The event was one in a series of regional youth tournaments sponsored by the United States Fencing Association. The USFA requires participation at a super youth event as a prerequisite for the national tournament.
This is the second successful Super Youth Circuit event of 2013 for Josef. In January, he won the bronze medal in the under-14 saber. He finished best of the five fencers from the RIFAC.
