This weekend four members of the women’s fencing team will have a chance to show their talent off at the national level.
Freshmen Demi Antipas, Jessica Hall, Petra Khan and Olivia Wynn will all be competing at the Junior Olympic Fencing championships. This weekend the four Owl competitors will not be competing against other schools, rather the fencers from across the country that fall in their age groups. The four freshmen are the only ones competing because of the age restrictions on the junior event.
Antipas and Wynn will compete in the foil event, Hall in epee and Khan in sabre. In the foil event Antipas and Wynn will compete in a bracket that is comprised of 160 competitors, Hall will compete with 181 competitors and Khan’s bracket has 133 entrants.
The event was not posted to the Owls’ schedule until just this week and will be held in Baltimore, MD.
