Our sabreists lunged into action at the Singapore Sabre Nationals and Minime 2023 held at the OCBC Arena. Over the weekend from 28 to 29 January 2023, they put up a strong fight, and topped the leaderboard in their respective events.

Secondary 2 fencer Ashton Auw Sen Hon stood tall in the competition as he defeated 16 others to enter the all-Sports School finals against his junior Cameron Soliano Alexandra Tan. Ashton eventually won the Under-14 Men's Sabre Individual event, and took home the gold medal, while Cameron settled for a silver medal.

Their seniors did just as well in the competition, with post-secondary student-athletes Dan Wei Zuo and Isaac Ong Shao En breaking into the top 3 positions at the Men's Sabre Individual. Both eventually finished with a silver and bronze respectively. Meanwhile, Juliet Heng Jie Min was the only Sports School student-athlete who medalled in the Women's Sabre Individual event. She took home a silver medal.

In total, our fencers clinched 7 medals. This includes 1 gold, 3 silver, and 1 bronze. Sarah Koh Ya Qi and Kayla Por Ke Xin, who finished in 5th and 6th place respectively in the Under-14 Women's Sabre Individual, were also presented a medal.
