Bishop Guertin of Nashua fencer third in nationals

Sucheta Tamragouri, 17, a senior at Bishop Guertin High School of Nashua and member of the Seacoast Fencing Club in Manchester, took third place in the Division III Women’s Epee at a recent national tournament in Memphis.

Tamragouri won all six of her bouts in the first round, with no one scoring more than three touches against her, and was the top seed going into the direct elimination round. She squeezed out a victory in her first D/E against the No. 33 seed, winning 15-14.
Her next bout was against the No. 48 seed, which she won handily, 15-10. She played a waiting game against the No. 8 seed, and won 6-3, with time running out. In the round of four, she lost to the eventual silver medalist, 15-8.

Tamragouri has been fencing for six years, and competing on the national level since 2011. This is her first national medal, in her last season before heading off to college. Said Tamragouri: “I am extremely glad to be able to make my parents, family, and coach, Chris Pullo, proud. I owe all my success to them and their patience. I love the sport and hope to continue fencing for a very long time.”
