PRINCETON, N.J. – After the first day of competition, the Yale women's fencing team is ranked fifth out of seven schools. The Bulldogs experienced two tough losses—losing to Princeton 10-17 and Harvard 13-14—but defeated Brown handily 24-3.
With the top six finishers in each weapon receiving first-team and second-team All-Ivy honors at the end of the two-day competition, the team has a significant number of fencers in the running. Junior Sarah Pak is currently in first place for women's foil, her squadmate Anna Zhou not far behind in fourth place. Captain Ilana Kamber also finished the day in fourth place for women's saber, while sophomore Michelle Nam—with a 7-1 win record, the best on the team—is in third place for women's epee.
The team fences again tomorrow, finishing up the round-robin competition with match-ups against Penn, Columbia and Cornell.
