For many sports, if a team wins the county championship, they often go on to regional and state championship competitions. In Fencing, the county championship is the highest plateau.
When the Oyster Bay High School Boys Varsity Fencing Team recently won the Nassau County Championship it seemingly spelled the end of an illustrious high school fencing career of Oyster Bay High School senior Jack Greenfield.
Jack was selected as an All-Long Island Fencer for a staggering fourth year in a row and was not ready to hang up the Epee just yet.
On March 4, Jack represented Oyster Bay in the Fencers Club High School Invitational and won the championship. The gold medal bout was against Ayyub Ibrahim, a former Cadet National Champion and U.S. National Team member. Jack won with a score of 15-13. Jack was awarded a silver loving cup engraved with his name and Oyster Bay High School.
Jack will be attending M.I.T. in Boston in September.
