EFC fencers Catriona Sibert and Ruth Clarke both medalled at the 2013 BUCS Championships in Sheffield in February.

After strong performances in the pools, Catriona and Ruth were seeded 1st and 4th, this unfortunately meant that they met in the semi-finals. Both fencing for Edinburgh University, Catriona won the event being undefeated all day, and Ruth came away with Bronze, undefeated except by her EFC Team mate.
