Brentwood School fencer Jacob Leslie has been crowned the under-12 Boys’ Epee champion at the Eastern Region Youth Championships held in Stevenage.

During the two-day contest, which acts as a qualifier for the British Youth Championships in May, first year Jacob also secured bronze in the under-12 Boys’ Foil competing in a tough field of 26 young athletes.

It was a good weekend all round for Brentwood School with some fantastic medal-winning performances in the various disciplines.

In total, 23 fencers qualified to further represent the School and their region at the British Youth Championship Finals in Sheffield.

Further bronze medals were won by Maddy Gale and Tom Woolterton in their age-group on Foil.
