The girls’ fencing team is closing up their regular season with an even 5-5 record. Despite their losing record, the team was extremely successful at the District Tournament. They were the champions of District Three, with the épée squad winning first place and the foil squad coming in second.
By coming in first at Districts, the girls’ fencing team qualified for the Sweet Sixteen Tournament. They made it to the top eight after beating Millburn and losing to Columbia. However, the girls’ épée and foil squads have yet to compete in the upcoming Squad States.
Captain Jessica Li (VI) said, “I’m proud of our team for a great season and especially for coming together so quickly despite being a fairly young team.” She continued, “We had a wonderful performance at Districts. It has been exciting to see the significant improvements in everyone’s fencing over the season.”
