#Fencing: Northwestern’s Hamilton finishes top five at Junior Olympics

Last February, sophomore epee Pauline Hamilton went undefeated in pool play at the Junior Olympics, but was upset in the round of 64.

One year later, Hamilton again went 6-0 in pool play at the Junior Olympics, and this time made it all the way to the quarterfinals before finishing in fifth place.

Hamilton, who coach Zach Moss said was dealing with hand cramps during the competition, was the best of six Northwestern fencers who competed over the weekend in Memphis.

The rise of #fencing

Forget Zorro. He wasn’t a fencer.

The masked man’s swashbuckling movie scenes that capture the clatter from dueling rapiers as opponents fight on isn’t what today’s fencing is about.

Today’s fencing requires one-on-one strategy, physical agility and intensity and it’s drawing the attention of students at Homewood-Flossmoor and Marian Catholic High Schools. Nationwide, interest in high school fencing has been on a steady rise the past four decades, according to the National Fencing Club.

#Fencing: Singapore's Amita Berthier rises to No. 2 in women's foil world junior rankings

MODLING, AUSTRIA - She was nursing a sprained ankle but national foil fencer Amita Berthier dug deep to finish sixth in the final leg of the Junior World Cup competition in Modling, Austria on Saturday.

The result propelled the 17-year-old Singaporean to a career-high second in the women's foil world junior rankings.

Amita had won all her poule matches, then shrugged off the challenge of three fencers in the direct elimination rounds before she narrowly missed out on a semi-final spot, losing 13-15 to Russian Marta Martyanova in the quarter-finals.

Penn State women's #fencing has undefeated day at Duke

Penn State's weekend couldn't have gone much better.

The Nittany Lions went a perfect 3-0 today against Duke, North Carolina and Brandeis University.

The women’s sabreurs went 7-2 against Duke to seal the victory after two close losses in foil and epee. Zara Moss went 3-0 on the strip for saber. The Nittany Lions won the match 15-12. Without the seven wins from the saber team the score could have looked different and started the Nittany Lions' day in the loss column.
