    The women's fencing team, which opens its season this weekend, is bolstered by four new members this year. Joining the epée squad are two first-year recruits, Joy Ma of Merrick, New York, and Shirley Wang of Toronto, Canada. Ma and Wang bring their extensive experience to the squad, and both are formidable opponents to practice against in preparation for competition. Grace Baghdadi, a first-year walk-on from Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France, stepped into an open position on the foil squad, allowing Yale to boast a full squad for the coming season. Yoanna Lazarova, a sophomore walk-on from Sofia, Bulgaria, is a similarly welcome addition to the saber squad, allowing them the flexibility to use alternates in their lineup.
