Huntington High School Shows Mill Neck Students the Ins and Outs of Fencing
The Huntington High School Blue Devils fencing team visited Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf to teach students about the amazing sport of fencing.
The trip, which was coordinated by Blue Devils fencing coach and Mill Neck teacher Michelle O’Brien, allowed students of all ages to enjoy a short warm-up and workout session lead by Huntington physical education teacher Jamie Fishlow and Blue Devils coach Valinda O’Garra.
Members of the Blue Devils fencing team took their time to show Mill Neck students all about the sport, including the equipment, rules and the basic techniques participants utilize.
“They were incredible,” says O’Brien. “I couldn’t have asked for a better demonstration of the sport to kids who’d never seen it before. Students of every age and staff have stopped at my classroom either to tell me something they loved from it or to ask me when the Blue Devils are coming back for more.”
Students from O’Brien’s broadcasting class are currently editing a video taken on that special day.
