Fencers Perform Well at Ohio State-Penn Tri-Meet
The Princeton fencing teams finished their first weekend of competition Saturday at a tri-meet hosted by Penn and featuring Ohio State.
The Tigers were a perfect 4 for 4 in dual meets as both the men's and women's teams defeated Penn and Ohio State, and Princeton's fencers posted strong performances in the open competition as well.
The match against Penn was not countable on the men's side for NCAA purposes, as only two dual meets against the same team are countable and the Tiger men will meet Penn in the Ivy competition and at the Temple meet. The women's match is countable, as the Tiger women will not meet Penn at Temple, only at the Ivy meet.
On the men's side, Michael Dudey had a perfect 6-0 day in the dual-meet portion of the competition, while saberist Peter Pak posted the highest finish in the open competition, finishing second.
For the women's team, saberist Gracie Stone was 6-0 in duals while foilist Eve Levin and epeeist Anna Van Brummen both finished first in the open competition.
Princeton's individual results from the dual meets are below, and complete results from the pool and bracket portions of the open competition are available here.
The Tigers will return to the competition strip Dec. 8 for a day of dual meets at Sacred Heart.
