Gunn grad Kwong earns fencing championship in Las Vegas


Gunn grad and incoming Stanford freshman Samuel Kwong won the DI-A Men's Saber championship at the U.S. Summer Nationals currently being held in Dallas.

Cardinal Fencing Club's Calvin Zau placed sixth in the Y-14 Men's Sabre competition.

Zau's older sister, Claire, is on the Stanford women's fencing team.

George Pogosov, Zau's coach and the head of the Cardinal fencing club is also a co-head coach for Stanford. He served as coach of the Ukrainian national team.

Kwong, who won the Y-14 Sabre national title in 2013, was part of the Junior Olympic Sabre team championship.

He's a four-time USA Fencing first team all-academic selection and an accomplished violin player.

On Tuesday, Cardinal club fencer Caroline Wang placed 35th in the Division II women's Sabre competition.

Wang's older sister competes at Stanford.

Menlo School's Drew Wadsworth finished seventh in Division II men's foil.
