The weekend of February 18, The Morgan Fencing team hosted their fourth Annual Invitational JV Fencing Tournament. The tournament was non-competitive and only featured Foil, one of the three weapons. The purpose was to raise money for the team through the sale of concessions, raffles, and candy grams. The team also gathered over 500 pounds of nonperishable food for the Clinton food pantry.
Head Coach Jim Barnett said,”our donations to the Clinton Food Pantry will exceed previous years due to the success of the tournament and the kindness of the ten teams that attended the event.

At the end of the competition, coaches were already asking to be invited back next year.”
The following ten teams from across the state participated in the tournament:
