UNB Fencers, Raphäel Bradley and Cameron Haigh, took gold and bronze, respectively, at the Quebec AAA Championships held in Rimouski last weekend. After mixed poule-round results, both fencers won their quarter-final bouts handily, advancing to the semi-finals round. Here, Raphäel would defeat second seed Xavier Boulin-Léger in a strong 15-12 performance. Cameron, facing eventual silver medalist, Steven Moore, fell 10-15 in his semi-final bout, enough for the bronze medal. Raphäel and Steven would face off in the final. After losing to Moore in both of their preliminary round matchups, Raphäel learned from those bouts and took home the win in a highly contested 15-12 bout.

Congratulations to both Raphäel and Cameron on your excellent performance!
