SHS student gears up for national fencing competition

When Blake Watson tells people that he fences, he says that they usually imagine him as Zorro or a light-saber-wielding Star Wars character. But the rising senior at Statesboro High School doesn't spend his time rescuing damsels in distress or battling "the dark side".

It takes as much physical ability as any other athletic competition and is as mentally challenging as a chess game.
