NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Yale men's fencing team will host Sacred Heart and Drew for a meet on Saturday, January 30. The meet will take place in the seventh floor fencing salon in the Payne Whitney Gymnasium. This will be the Elis' final competition of the regular season, before they begin Ivy League competition.

Last year, the Bulldogs hosted both Sacred Heart and Drew and won both matched by a final score of 15-12. The previous year, Yale also defeated Sacred Heart by a final score of 15-12. Drew was a new addition last year.

Team captain Andrew Holbrook is looking forward to the meet as a tuneup for the Ivy Championships.

"We are all excited for our final home meet of the season," he said. "As we head into the break before Ivies, it will be important for us to come out focused and ready. We want to make the most of this final opportunity to prepare for the Ivy League tournament. Against Sacred Heart, we will need to be prepared from the first bout, but we are confident that we can win against both schools."

The meet will begin at 1 p.m. against Sacred Heart, with Drew following after.
