Virginia Beach, Va. – The University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish fencers returned to South Bend late Monday night with weary smiles on their faces. After four days of intense competition at the January North American Cup, two women’s fencers earned bronze medals and a slew of other combatants finished within the top 20 of their respective weapons.
“This weekend, we started an important part of the season with both international events and in Virginia Beach, with the North America Cup. The NAC is a continental tryout for the national team, and great form was shown by several fencers that also medaled in this important event,” Irish head coach Janusz Bednarski says.
