Big Red Fencing opened up their season at the 34th annual Temple Open in Philadelphia, PA. Cornell fenced off against a number of top tier varsity programs including Penn State, UNC Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania and NYU. With Hurricane Sandy on the horizon, a number of teams had to leave during the tournament, causing some shifts in seeding and direct elimination determinations. Such a superstorm was no obstacle however for the Big Red. Sophomore Matthew Laks captured a fifth place finish in Sabre, one of the best showings in team history.
