Snider wins gold at 2014 North American fencing cup
MINNEAPOLIS– Maggie Snider of Solon competed in the USA Fencing North American Cup, taking first place in the Division 2 Women’s Epee event.
Division 2 is an open division with an age minimum (13 years), but no age maximum. The event included top youth, college and adult fencers from around the country. At 13, Snider is the youngest fencer to win the event in over a decade.
Snider trains at the Iowa City Fencing Center (ICFC) with her coach and former Team USA fencer Judy O’Donnell. She has been fencing for four years and credits her success to the support she receives from family, her ICFC teammates, and the excellent training she receives from coach O’Donnell.
