Jan. 23, 2008
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - With a clean sweep of the weapons against Vassar Wednesday night at Payne Whitney Gymnasium, the Yale Bulldogs improved their dual meet record to 4-2 on the season. The foil squad took eight of nine bouts to pace the 20-7 win. The epee and sabre squads both tallied 6-3 victories.
The Bulldogs are now 2-0 at home, having beaten Sacred Heart, 15-12, on Dec. 8. The Elis will play host to the entire Ivy League on Feb. 3 for the Ivy League North Competition.
Yale Coach Henry Harutunian was particularly pleased with the foil squad's performance, citing the Vassar foil squad as its strength.
The Bulldogs will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 26, when they travel to New York, N.Y. for the NYU Invitational.
