Mighty Swords

Men’s and women’s fencing won their respective Ivy League fencing titles in February — the second consecutive championship for the women and the sixth consecutive for the men (though the first time the men have held the title outright since 2008). Sylvie Binder ’21 captured the individual women’s foil championship with a perfect 14–0 record. And head fencing coach Michael Aufrichtig was named Ivy League Coach of the year for women’s fencing.

The men and women also piled up the All-Ivy accolades. Andrew Doddo ’20 (sabre), Sam Moelis ’20 (foil), Nolen Scruggs ’19 (foil), Nora Burke ’22 (sabre), Binder and Iman Blow ’19 (foil) were named to the first team roster. Second-team honors went to Calvin Liang ’19 (sabre), Cedric Mecke ’22 (epee) and Sidarth Kumbla ’21 (foil). At press time, the Lions were set to host the NCAA Regionals on March 10 at Vassar College.
