Four Princeton fencers, some current and some former, added to their awards collection at the Pan-American Championships in Costa Rica, which wrapped up June 6.

Epeeists Jonathan Yergler '13, rising junior Anna Van Brummen and rising senior Katharine Holmes and saberist Eliza Stone '13 all won medals while competing individally, with Team USA or both.

Holmes and Van Brummen started the competition June 1 with Holmes taking silver and Van Brummen bronze in the individual epee event. Van Brummen started the elimination bracket as the No. 13 seed and won her way to the semifinals before falling to fellow American Courtney Hurley 15-11. Hurley then defeated Holmes, the No. 7 seed, in the final 15-6.

Yergler was the next Tiger up on June 2, finishing 19th in the men's individual epee competition after being upset in the Round of 32 in the elimination draw by Brazilian Richard Grunhauser 15-8.

Two days later, Holmes helped the U.S. women's epee team to a gold medal, knocking off Colombia, Argentina and Venezuela on the way to the win.

June 5 saw Eliza Stone and the women's saber team also win gold, defeating the Dominican Republic, Argentina and Mexico en route to the gold, and the competition's final day June 6 saw Yergler and the men's epee team finish third. The Americans defeated Puerto Rico in the quarterfinals but lost to Canada 45-35 in the semis before clinching bronze with a 45-31 win over Argentina.
