i thought we had the strongest women's team but would not have thought our men would perform that well
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).
so three possible individual national champs with really good chances in 2 of the 3 weapons
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.
I'll keep posted, as I'm at venue
backdrop fell down.
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.
