Katherine Miller Earns Second Team All-Ivy Honors
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Sophomore Katherine Miller finished in fourth place and earned second team All-Ivy honors at the Feb. 8-9 Ivy League Championship as the Yale women's fencing team closed the competition in seventh place.
The round robin tournament, which was hosted this year by Brown in Providence, R.I., featured tough competition that challenged the Bulldogs across the two days of fencing.
Coming into Sunday, Yale sat in seventh place with a 0-4 record. Columbia beat Yale 19-8 in Sunday's first round, before the Bulldogs fell to Cornell 16-11 in the final round of the tournament. That result left Yale with a 0-6 record for the competition. Defending national champion Princeton took home the Ivy League Championship for the fifth time in a row with a 6-0 record.
Miller was Yale's standout fencer for the competition. She finished Sunday with a 0.733 percentage in epee competition, to close in fourth place. That result earned her second team All-Ivy honors.
In their first Ivy League Championship, two freshmen—Joanna Lew and Lillie Lainoff—finished in 10th and 12th place, respectively, in saber competition. Junior captain Lauren Miller closed the tournament tied in 14th place in foil.
The Bulldogs will return to competition at the Feb. 23 USAG Collegiate Nationals, hosted this year by Penn in Philadelphia.
