Thailand World Cup Results: Igoe leads Team USA with Silver Medal. Morehouse 6th Place.

Pattaya, Thailand — The second half of the international fencing season kicked off with the world cup in Thailand.  Ben Igoe paced team USA with a 2nd place finish while Tim Morehouse finished 6th.  Both fencers bounced back from lackluster performances at the North American Fencing Cup in Virginia Beach to finish strongly.

Rhys Douglas and Mike Etropolski finished in the top-16.   Luther Clement, Brad Baker and Ewan Douglas went out in the round of 32.  The competition was small due to the political turmoil in the country.  only 42 competitors participated. 

 
The fourth team spot is still up for grabs with the potential retirement of James Williams.    Etropolski’s results places him into 5th place slightly ahead of Jason Rogers, Sean Buckley, Andrew Fishcl and Jeff Spear for what could be the final spot.   James Williams, now idle in the ranking, still remains 700 points ahead of Etropolski.
