In the final weekend before the rescheduled Ivy League Championships, the Princeton fencing teams sent competitors to Ohio State for the National Squad Championships and came home with two first-place finishes.

Both the women's epee and women's saber teams came home with the gold. In the epee, Princeton had the No. 2 seed and defeated NYU 45-17 in the quarterfinals, Northwestern 45-32 in the semifinals, and Ohio State 45-31 in the final. Hannah Safford, Phoebe Caldwell, Susannah Schanlan and Christina Efthimion contributed to the won. In the saber, Princeton, also with the No. 2 seed, had a quarterfinal bye before defeating Northwestern 45-34 in the semis and Ohio State 45-29 in the final. Gracie Stone, Desirae Major, Diamond Wheeler and Arden Youngblood were part of Princeton's team in that weapon.

In men's epee, Princeton opened with the No. 2 seed and a bye in the quarterfinals, but the Tiger trio of Luke Politi, Delaney Granizo-Mackenzie and James O'Donnell were out-touched by Sacred Heart 45-43. That sent Princeton's three to the third-place match, where Penn won 45-27.
