Fencing represents BC in the US Collegiate Squad Championships
Feb. 23, 2014
Women's epee led the way Sunday as BC's men's and women's fencing team competed at the U.S. Collegiate Squad Championships, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania at Coach Dave Micahnik Fencing Center. The Eagles claimed bronze in that women's epee, with Cara Hall, Olivia Adragna, and Renee Bichette.
Twelve teams participated in the event, some fencing in just a few weapons. BC women competed in all three and the men's squad was represented well by the foils.
The BC men's foil finished fourth with the help of Graap, Lee, Siy, and Wetzel.
Women's sabre and foil faced tough competition all day, both finishing in last place against the best of the Ivy League.
Eagles are at Wellesley College for the Northeast Regional Championships on March 9th.
