Evanston, Ill. – The University of Notre Dame’s fencing team once again put in a command performance at the Northwestern Duals, out-dueling opponents from schools nationwide in eight grueling rounds.

Starting at 8:00 a.m., the women’s squad posted a definitive 20-7 win over Stanford. Sabreists Johanna Thill, Allison Barry and Mary Regan won their weapon class 5-4, and remained in the rotation throughout the day. In women’s foil, Nicole McKee, Sarah Followill and Adriana Camacho posted a shutout with a 9-0 victory. In epee, Nicole Ameli, Catherine Lee and Ashley Severson finished the win with a 6-3 record.

Differing slightly from other invites, the men’s and women’s squads squared off against different teams in each round. The men dropped the first round bout against Penn, 19-8, but came back in the second round against Princeton, they pulled off the upset and won 15-12. Sabre and epee both posted 5-4 marks, and the foil squad – competing without captain Gerek Meinhardt – won 6-3.
