Ashley-Marie Gregory competes in a rather unusual sport, especially for a girl.
“When I tell my friends that I compete in fencing, many think of an actual wooden fence,” said Gregory, a Sulphur Springs High School freshman, with a laugh. “I like to fence. It requires stamina with all the moving around, balance, and hand-eye coordination.”
Gregory has auto-qualified for the Youth 14 Women's Saber Division for the third year. This will be her first trip to the Summer Nationals to be held at the beginning of July at the Texan Gaylord Resort in Arlington.
