The Swift Current Fencing Club took part in the Sask Open on March 8 and 9 in Regina. The yearly tournament stands as the Provincial Championships for fencing in the Province, and Swift Current fencing students had an incredible tournament.

Hope also took home a Bronze medal fencing above her age division in the Women's Division, sharing the podium with fellow Swift Current teammate Karin Roen, who also took home a Bronze in the division.

Sound results that were led by example in Coach Lisa Hagen who medaled in three divisions, taking Gold in the Masters division in Foil, a Silver medal in Senior Women's Foil, and a Bronze in Senior Women's Epee.
