Swords Fencers Distinguish Themselves at NCAA Championships!
We are excited to share the achievements of some of our "older" fencers! Stephen Ewart and Irene Yeu distinguished themselves at the NCAA finals at Penn State this weekend!
Stephen Ewart, Notre Dame '22, fenced the NCAA finals, proving himself a key player in securing Notre Dame's 11th National Championship, tying ND football for the most national championships by any program at ND (football? What is that???). To read more: Notre Dame Fencing
Irene Yeu, Stanford '24, placed fifth in the NCAA (and fenced another Swords fencer - shout out to Nicole Agob, Air Force '21). Maybe Stanford should rethink their exit from NCAA in fencing??? We think so. To read more: Stanford Fencing
