i thought we had the strongest women's team but would not have thought our men would perform that well


The program's 9th title.

And, interestingly enough, ND might win the team title without a single individual title (currently no leaders among the continuing events, but it is still possible ND women could win in any of the three weapons).


Looks like we'll have finalists is all three weapons

so three possible individual national champs with really good chances in 2 of the 3 weapons


Lee Kiefer going for her NC on ESPN3 right now *

Kiefer in the final for Foil, Russo in the finals for Sabre.

Both were top rated going into the Final 4. Kiefer is up against another OSU fencer after beating the first 15-7. Russo won over the St. John's girl 15-9 and awaits her final opponent who are fencing off now between Penn State and Princeton girls. Amanda Sirico lost in the semis 15-10 to a Princeton girl who will face a teammate in the Epee final.

Still have a chance for 2 women's National Champions and they'll probably compete on ESPN3 in about half hour after these semis finish and the Epee final is completed. Individual results are linked below.


Foil to start now

Then sabre.

I'll keep posted, as I'm at venue

quick points. The Penn State gal was certainly a gamer but Russo had a little more for our second individual National Championship. When Keifer won it was close early but then she dominated when she got into the teens until she got her 15.
