The men's team did not fare as well, beating only Vassar and Dartmouth, while dropping matches to MIT, Brandeis and Brown. The match against Brandeis was close, 13-14, but good results in foil and epee could not overcome the 2-7 deficit in sabre. Han Min Lee and Patrick Riley in foil had the best results for the day, going 12-3 and 10-5 respectively. Epeeist Kendall Harmeyer was 9-5 in epee, including a win over 2012 NCAA qualifier Kelly McGuire of Brown. Devin Midgley in sabre was 7-5.

The team travels to MIT on Sunday, where they will face Duke (men #9 and women #11), Hunter, Haverford, Stevens Tech (women #20), UPenn (men #8, women #10) and NYU.
