Buckeye Fencing Bounces Back at NW Duals


The defending National Champions traveled to Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago, this past weekend for the last regular season meet in the NCAA season.

It was a weekend of strong senior performances. Max Sterns, senior and leader of the Men's Sabre squad, finished the weekend with a 19-2 record. Men's Epee senior Marco Canevari finished 14-2 and both seniors ran the table against top rival Notre Dame to help the Men's team claim victory.

Chicago native and Sabre senior Allison Miller lead the Women's Sabre with a 26-3 record and together with sophomores Chelsea Martinez and Celina Merza went on a 10-0 (team record) tear through the competition.

Brother-sister Olympian foil duo Zain and Mona Shaito went a combined 43-5 on the weekend.

All in all the Buckeyes finished 15-2, with a narrow Men's loss to Standford and a the Women falling to Notre Dame. Ohio State finished the season with an overall team record of 40-11 and is now heading into Conference Championships with a strong chance of claiming another Midwest title.

Before that the Junior Olympics are this week and certain underclassmen Buckeyes have qualified and will be taking part.
