Fencing Sits at 5-1 with Two to Go

The fencing program’s record for wins in a season is six. This year’s team currently sits at 5-1 with two matches on the schedule next week. The first of those matches is against Beaver Country Day, a team Belmont Day has already seen twice, losing the first (15-12) and winning the second (14-13). To have a chance at the record, the team will need standout performances from their most talented fencers, including Henry Buckley-Jones, Ashley Luo, and Paul Lyons. Over the course of the season, these three athletes have been instrumental to the team’s success, both on and off the strip and have set a great example for their less experienced teammates.
