Five of six North Carolina weapons finished in the top 10 in fencing action Sunday at the U.S. Collegiate Squad Fencing Championships in New York. Women's sabre led the way for UNC, finishing fifth. The Tar Heels were sixth in women's epee and men's sabre, seventh in men's epee, eighth in men's foil and 12th in women's foil.
Hosted by NYU, the event is in its second year and included a very challenging field. Seven of the nation's top 10 women's teams and eight of the top 10 men's teams competed on Sunday. Princeton swept all three women's weapons. St. John's won men's epee, Notre Dame took men's foil and Penn took men's sabre.
