Full Fencing Blue for St Cross Student


St Cross DPhil student Helena Rodriguez has been awarded a Full Blue in Fencing in recognition of her success as Women's Captain of the Oxford University Fencing Club.

The Club won Varsity this year, and also came in the Top 4 in the BUCS Fencing 2016-17 Championship and won the BUCS Fencing 2016-17 Premier South League. Helena came 65th in the UK National Senior Women's Epee Ranking (out of 260 fencers), and has won two bronzes in British competitions this year. Helena will be competing in Valencia this month at the Spanish National Championships as a senior fencer, and later this year she will be competing at the Spanish Olympic Academy events.
