On November 19, the Cornell Men’s Fencing Club travelled to Haverford College and competed at the first MACFA meet of our schedule. We went undefeated beating Haverford College, Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland College Park, William and Mary, and University of Virginia. We had not defeated Haverford in 2 years.
The Big Red opened their season this weekend at the 33rd annual Temple Open in Philadelphia, PA. With nearly 100 fencers per event, Cornell fenced off against a number of strong Varsity programs such as Penn State, University of Pennsylvania, UNC Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins and NYU. Making one of the best showings in recent years, Mike Fotinatos captured a top 8 finish while Zach Silversmith, Nick Heiner, and Harrison Fox finished in the top 16.
