Fencing Remains Undefeated

With a commanding 16-11 win over the International School of Boston, the fencing team kept their unblemished record intact and will roll into next week’s showdown against Beaver with momentum on their side. Despite losing sabre (4-5) and foil (4-5) the epee squad propelled the team to a win behind their 8-1 record. Kaitlyn Tan, Sophia Tang, and Jacob Stephenson all shined for the home team, each finishing the day 2-0. Second-year fencer Rosie Schrag also had a standout performance with a dominating 5-0 win in her only bout. With a combination of new energy and veteran talent, the Blue & Gold have set high expectations for the season and as they approach the midway point of their campaign it’s been all W’s thus far.
