Go Buckeyes!

COLUMBUS, Ohio The Ohio State fencing team wrapped up the OSU Duals with a perfect 20-0 combined team record Saturday in St. John Arena. The shutout marked the fifth-consecutive year the Buckeyes have gone unbeaten at their home event.

The women’s team was led by the senior sabre duo of Eileen Grench and Siobhan Byrne, who each went unbeaten, leading the sabre team to an 88-2 record against the opposition. Kaela Brendler and the women’s epee squad shutout seven opponents, losing only three bouts all day. In total, the women’s team recorded seven 27-0 with shutouts against 10 schools.

The men’s team, despite the absence of reigning foil national champion Andras Horanyi, was equally impressive. Senior Will Jeter lost only one match and led the foil unit to an 85-5 mark on the day. The sabre unit was also missing All-Americans Sergey Smirnoff and Mikhail Momtselidze, but still managed to lose only 11 matches on the day.

Ohio State will be back in action Nov. 17-18 at the Penn State Open.
