Though some Tiger fencers have been competing individually on continents near and far, the Princeton fencing teams will break a hiatus from competition of nearly two months Saturday and Sunday when they return for a series of dual matches at Northwestern.

It's an event at which Princeton has competed in each of the last four seasons. On their last visit, the women's team finished with a record of 10-2, with their only defeats coming to Ohio State and Notre Dame. The men's team went 10-1 with their only loss to Notre Dame.

Both Tiger teams, which are ranked in the top three in the nation by CollegeFencing360.com, the team rankings used by the NCAA, will face tough competition at Northwestern. The women's team, ranked No. 1 in the nation, will face 13 opponents, four of whom are ranked in the top 10 and three more of which are receiving votes. The ranked foes, which will try to end Princeton's streak of 26 straight dual-meet victories, include No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 7 Northwestern and No. 9 Temple.

The men's team, ranked No. 3 in the nation, will take on 11 opponents, three of which are ranked in the top 10 with two more receiving votes. The ranked opponents include No. 4 Notre Dame, No. 6 Ohio State and No. 10 Stanford.

The trip to Northwestern will come just one week before the Ivy League Championship, which will be held at Brown Feb. 8-9.
