Yale to Fence Sacred Heart and Drew University

Jan. 29, 2009

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Bulldogs will host Sacred Heart and Drew University in the 7th-floor fencing salon at Payne Whitney Gymnasium this Saturday. After a weekend of tough competition at NYU, the Bulldogs are excited to fence at home for the first and only time this season. Yale will fence Sacred Heart at 1:00 p.m. and Drew at 3:00 p.m.

Last year the Bulldogs defeated Sacred Heart 17-10. Drew will be new for Yale. Starting squads are to be determined.

Yale went 2-3 at the NYU Invitational last weekend, beating NYU and Wayne State but falling to defending National Champion Ohio State, national runner-up Notre Dame and Northwestern.
