EASTON, Pa. -- Epeeists Edward Kelley and Hannah Safford and foilist Ambika Singh all won NCAA Mid-Atlantic/South Regional titles Saturday in the meet hosted by Lafayette.

The meet counts for 60 percent and the regular season counts for 40 percent when the NCAA committee draws up the list of 24 bids in each of the six weapons for the NCAA Championship later this month in Columbus, Ohio. The list of selected fencers will be out during the coming week, and a school qualifying the maximum 12 fencers is a good start toward a high finish at the NCAA finals. Princeton took fourth last year, matching its highest finish since the current men's/women's combined format began in 1990.

The Mid-Atlantic/South region gets seven bids in men's foil, men's saber, women's epee and women's saber, while the region gets six bids in men's epee and women's foil.
