Sophomore Auset Muhammad Takes the Gold
High School sophomore, Auset Muhammad recently won first place at the 2012/13 Great Lakes High School Fencing Conference (GLHSFC). Nearly 300 high school fencers participated in three weapons – Foil, Epee, and Saber.
The Women's Foil category hosted 44 competitors, 10 of which Auset defeated to win the 1st Place Gold Medal. Auset entered the competition as the #3 seed. She finished out the day as the top ranked seed (#1) and Gold medalist with a total point accumulation of 100. Her opponents only managed to score a total of 32 points against her for the day.
