Fencing on the rise in Maine

first_img Taylor VorthermsSports Editor at The Ellsworth AmericanTaylor Vortherms covers sports in Hancock County. The St. Louis, Missouri native recently graduated from the Missouri School of Journalism and joined The Ellsworth American in 2013. Part 1: Invisible, incapacitating concussions are sidelining high school athletes – July 19, 2016 BUCKSPORT — While some girls name their dolls, 12-year-old fencer Erin Gerbi names her sword blades.“This one is Charm,” says the Orono native, showing off her new saber last Thursday evening at John Krauss’ fencing class at the Jewett School. Charm joins “Dark Maul” and “Darth Sabre” in Gerbi’s collection of weapons.Erin began fencing three years ago after attending an introductory class at Krauss’ Down East School of Fencing in Verona Island. Krauss founded the school two decades ago at a time when fencers across the state had no access to formal training.While the sport is gaining popularity nationally, Krauss is still one of few full-time instructors in Maine giving aspiring fencers an opportunity to try it out.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“I try to communicate the spirit of fencing,” says Krauss, a veteran national competitor. “The idea of the cavalier and noble knights … Kids still have a lot of fantasy stuff in their minds. I just need to light that fire.”Nine-year-old Zoe Sikkel of Bucksport, one of seven children at Krauss’ introductory class last Thursday afternoon, says she became interested in fencing though movies such as “The Princess Bride.”“It’s a really historical thing, and I thought it would be awesome to try,” Sikkel says while peeling away layers of white protective gear after class. “It’s hot,” she says of her garb, “but worth it.”Sikkel says that when she’s holding the foil — one of three fencing weapons along with the saber and epee — she feels like she’s “in her own world.”“It’s like you’re one of the people in the movies,” she says with closed eyes and splayed arms. “It’s just like, wow.”Krauss’ classes are private — fencing is not yet a sanctioned school sport in Maine.Ellsworth High School freshman Emma Henry, 14, began attending Krauss’ classes two years ago.“Emma has always had a great imagination,” says Kirsten Henry, Emma’s mother as well as owner of the ice cream shop Mortons Moo in downtown Ellsworth. “Ever since she was a young child, she has asked about fencing. I just didn’t know there was anything in this area.”Krauss trains about 65 fencers, ranging in age from 7 to 70, in locations including Verona Island, Bucksport, Old Town, Rockport, Belfast and Northeast Harbor. He began offering classes in 1995 when he noticed fencers gathering informally to duel in YMCA gymnasiums.Krauss has since introduced the sport to countless children, including Azaline Dunlap-Smith — a Machias native who discovered her knack for fencing through Krauss’ classes when she was 9. Today, Dunlap-Smith competes internationally in the women’s epee division. Krauss says he expects she’ll eventually compete in the Olympics.“I’ve trained and worked with many talented fencers,” Krauss says. “If I hadn’t been here, a lot of kids wouldn’t have found the sport they enjoy. It’s an option for kids beyond just team sports.”Krauss conducts his introductory classes with patience. He teaches children the scoring system, which awards one point each time a fencer touches an opponent with his or her weapon.When the young fencers begin slicing the air with foils, Krauss gently suggests a more efficient, and less erratic, stroke.“I want to convey that fencing is a thing of integrity, honor and ability,” Krauss says, “As opposed to a forceful brawl.”Erin Gerbi, however, doesn’t hesitate to share her favorite part of fencing.“Hitting people,” she says. “I like being able to attack.”Erin’s mother, Aimee Gerbi, signed her daughter up at age 9 after noticing her fondness for sword fighting a neighbor boy using bamboo sticks.“Saber is a more aggressive weapon, and that appealed to Erin,” Aimee says. “You don’t have to poke, you get to whack, and the head is a target.”Amy laughs. “That about sums up Erin.”Erin isn’t afraid to speak her mind during the class for advanced fencers. She stands with her hip cocked, appearing bored, as a less experienced boy takes his position across from her on the strip.“Does he know what he’s doing?” Erin mumbles. “Or can I hit him?”Erin is determined to make the national tournament this season. But she’s at a disadvantage in Maine. The road to Nationals requires accumulating “points” at regional competitions. The closest contest for the Gerbis is in Boston, with the majority farther south in New Jersey and New York.Aimee, who has three other children, says the travel expenses add up.“It can be a challenge,” she says. “For a kid like Erin to get enough points, it means a tournament almost every weekend.”Last season, Erin won the Maine-New Hampshire youth age 14 and under saber division because she showed up.“Here’s how many Y14 saber fencers are in Maine and New Hampshire,” Aimee says, holding up one finger. “Here, Erin can find maybe five kids to fence, and she can beat them easily.”Without the competition available in other northeastern states, Erin practices her footwork daily by herself on a half strip in her basement.“She’s dedicated, but she’s still a 12-year-old girl,” Aimee says. “She’d rather be doing footwork with other kids.”For 11-year-old Chase Emmer of New Jersey, his favorite part of fencing is “getting to see my friends.”Emmer, last season’s Y10 national foil champion, summers in Maine and attends Krauss’ classes to keep his skills sharp.Lily Millard (left) and Chase Emmer compete in a fencing class last Thursday at the Jewett School in Bucksport. PHOTO BY TAYLOR VORTHERMS“I think I’ll ride this into college,” says the soft-spoken boy.Emmer’s mother, Natalin Po, refers to New Jersey as “the East Coast mecca for fencing.”“Fencing is definitely growing there,” she says. “When Chase first started five years ago, I didn’t even hear about fencing.”But within the last couple years, Po says most schools in their area have begun offering fencing as an after-school activity.“New Jersey has the highest concentration of fencers,” Krauss says. “So if it’s building there, that tells you something.”Krauss says the trend is slowly reaching Maine, with other fencing clubs opening up across the state. Interest in Krauss’ classes has also grown in recent years.“I used to have to advertise,” Krauss says. “Now, they call me.”Fencers such as United States Olympic saber silver medalist Tim Morehouse have helped the cause. Last year, Morehouse gave seminars at EHS and Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School advocating for the implementation of fencing as a school sport.“It would make a great high school sport,” Kirsten Henry says. “More kids would get involved if they knew about it.”For Erin, fencing seems to suit her feisty personality.“Fencing has become a part of who I am,” Erin says. “I don’t know what I’d do without it.”At a recent tournament, Aimee Gerbi says a mother approached her to rave about Erin’s great sportsmanship. When she referred to Erin as “charming,” Krauss, who was sitting nearby, scoffed at the compliment.“Oh, she’s charming alright,” Krauss said to the woman in jest. “She’s got her own special kind of charm.”For Erin’s birthday, she got a blade.“She named it Charm,” Aimee says, “so she can hit people with her charm.”For more information about the Down East School of Fencing, call John Krauss at 974-8461, email him at desfcg@aol.com, or visit downeastfencing.net.

High-flying New Zealand whitewash India

first_imgMount Maunganui: Colin de Grandhomme smashed an unbeaten 28-ball 58 as New Zealand crushed India by five wickets in the final ODI at the Bay Oval on Tuesday, thereby clinching the three-match series 3-0.Grandhomme came in to bat when the Black Caps, chasing 297, were 220/4 at the end of 40 overs. The big-hitting all-rounder took the game by the scruff of the neck by taking a liking to Shardul Thakur who went for 83 runs in nine overs as he smacked six fours and three sixes during his stay at the crease.Besides him, opener Henry Nicholls set the tone of the chase with a well-paced 80 off 103 balls (9×4) with contributions from Martin Guptill (66) and Tom Latham, who was unbeaten on 32 alongwith Grandhomme.For India, Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers returning figures of 3/47.For India, K.L. Rahul scored 112 but his effort went in vain in the end as India lost with 17 balls to spare.In their chase, the hosts were off to a flying start as Guptill and Nicholls shared a 106-run stand before Chahal castled Guptill with a beautiful delivery.Back leading the side after an injury layoff, Kane Williamson looked good to continue Kiwis’ domination but a lapse of concentration cost him his wicket as he whipped a Chahal delivery straight to midwicket where Mayank Agarwal took an easy catch.From a position of strength, New Zealand suddenly looked in trouble after in-form Ross Taylor (12) was caught by Virat Kohli at short cover off Ravindra Jadeja and in the very next over, Nicholls was caught behind off Thakur.Allrounder James Neesham joined the steady Latham in the middle but could not last long as he smacked a tossed up Chahal delivery straight to Kohli at mid-wicket.Grandhomme then took over and sent Thakur to the cleaners with Latham supporting him from the other end.Earlier, Rahul continued with his prolific run in the ongoing tour as he smashed a brilliant century to help India set a 297-run target.While Rahul top scored with 112, Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey made significant contributions of 62 and 42.Put into bat, India didn’t have a great start as they lost opener Mayank Agarwal (1) in the second over itself.Kohli, who came in next, did try to steady India’s ship. However, while playing an upper-cut, he was caught at the third man boundary after scoring just 9.Opener Prithvi Shaw didn’t let the fall of wickets get the better of him as he kept scoring boundaries and looked determined to play a big innings. However, just when things looked to be getting India’s way, Shaw lost his wicket as he was run-out after scoring 40 off 42 balls.Rahul and Iyer then came to India’s rescue and shared a 100-run stand to bring the visitors back in the game.Iyer, who had a 100 and fifty to his name in the first two matches, scored yet another half-century. However, after playing a well-compiled innings of 62, he was caught at mid-wicket by Grandhomme.Pandey, who replaced Kedar Jadhav for the dead rubber, came out with positive intent right from the word go and stitched a 112-run partnership off 113 balls as India went past the 250-mark.Rahul, who scored his fourth ODI ton, got out in the 47th over while trying to up the ante and was caught at long-off. Pandey (42 off 48) also got out the very next ball while trying to go for a maximum against Hamish Bennett.Bennett was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers as he returned with figures of 4/64 from his 10 overs. IANSFACT: 4 number of times India have been whitewashed in a bilateral ODI series of three or more matches, including this 3-0 result against New Zealand. The first two instances came in the 1980s, against West Indies, both 5-0, while the previous time was a 3-0 loss to Sri Lanka in 1997. India had also lost 4-0 to South Africa in 2006, but that was a five-match series with one game abandoned, so it does not qualify as a whitewash.FACT: Jasprit Bumrah went wicketless in an ODI series or tournament for the first time in his career. He has played 16 series in his five-year career and this was the first time he did not take a wicket. Even in the last series, against Australia at home, he picked only one wicket in three matches. He has now taken only one wicket in six ODIs since the World Cup, where he was India’s most successful bowler.FACT: 114.60 – Bowling average of India fast bowlers in this series, their second-worst in an ODI series of three or more matches. The pacers took only five wickets in the 85.2 overs bowled, of which Shardul Thakur took four wickets. Jasprit Bumrah and Navdeep Saini went wicketless and Mohammed Shami got one wicket. In comparison, the host’s fast bowlers picked up 18 wickets at average of 41.FACT: 6 – Number of ODI series in which New Zealand have whitewashed the opposition in the last five years. The six whitewashes include a 5-0 win over Pakistan in 2017-18 and a 3-0 over Sri Lanka in 2018-19. Bangladesh and West Indies were their other victims, all in series at home.Also Read: New Zealand women’s cricket captain Sophie Devine sets a unique recordAlso Watch: International Day of Women and Girls in Science observed at Assam Startup the Nest in Guwahatilast_img read more

Both batsmen reached their respective landmarks within the first 15 minutes of play.Chanderpaul was certainly the hero of the innings with his first hundred in the tournament.It was decorated with two boundaries and five huge sixe and ended when he was nearing his double century.The pair seized the advantage and took the score to 203. In the process they put together 163 runs for the fourth-wicket while taking the attack to the opposition bowlers.However, off-spinner Gajanan Suknanan (3-89) provided the City team with the vital breakthrough when he trapped Persaud leg before wicket for 72.West Demerara then lost Yetesh Dhanpaul (5) off the bowling on Ronaldo Alimohamed.

Volcanoes taking nothing for granted against Windies U19s

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC) – Windward Islands Volcanoes will be taking nothing for granted when they come up against minnows West Indies Under-19s, in the first game of a doubleheader that opens the Antigua leg of the Regional Super50 here yesterday.Volcanoes, boasting the likes of two-time Twenty20 World Cup-winning captain Darren Sammy and the current West Indies pair of Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher, enter the contest at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium as the definite favourites but captain Liam Sebastien said Tuesday they would not be underestimating the young side.“We will be looking to start with a win. In any competition it is always important to start off good. The guys are obviously raring to go and the guys are focused on that mission of winning the first game which obviously would set the tone,” Sebastien said.“Also, they are not a team we are going to underestimate. They’ve been preparing for a while, they’ve had a few camps together and it’s something we’re mindful of. We’re not going into the game complacent saying we’ve won the game alreadyWe know we still have to go out and play a good game of cricket. It is something we are aware of. We are aware of them in terms of what they can bring because we will be going into the game as favourites and favourites don’t always win.”Antigua will play host to Zone A which also comprises title-holders Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, Leeward Islands Hurricanes and English County side, Kent Spitfires.Today’s feature game set for the Coolidge Cricket Ground will see Kent clashing with Hurricanes in a day/night affair.But despite fixtures against the likes of Red Force and Kent, Sebastien believes the clash with the Windies Under-19s is the most critical one for Volcanoes.“This could be one of the most important games of the group for us because this is our first game and it’s against the team everybody expects to be the minnows of the group so it’s something that’s going to be very important in terms of our performance as a group,” he stressed.Meanwhile, Under-19s head coach Graeme West said his side were still building their confidence ahead of their first outing.However, he said their practice match last Sunday had gone a long way in boosting the side’s belief, and he was now hoping to see signs of development as the squad used the tournament as preparation for next year’s Youth World Cup.“We are building on what we did in [the camp in] Grenada in December,” the Englishman said.‘There are some nerves in the group. We have some young guys and inexperienced players in terms of senior cricket so on reflection I think it was a good exercise on Sunday. A lot of them come away from it with a lot more belief that they can compete at the senior level.”He continued: “I think what we are really looking for is the ability to make good decisions. For the bowlers, they are going to be under pressure. They are some very positive players they are going to be bowling against so it’s a little bit composure, a little bit setting the right fields for what they are trying to do.“For the batters, certainly at the top of the order, it’s really a case of developing the belief that they can perform.”last_img read more
