Poly’s fencing team competed in their first full-team event last Sunday at the USFA Open Foil at the College of the Desert. The team returns three seniors and adds nine freshmen to their roster. It was an exciting day for the team, as they came away with two bronze medals. The first bronze was awarded to senior Y. Siegel in the Mixed Foil event. Four other Poly student-athletes finished in the top 15 including B. Thompson (7), T. Fernandez (9), R. Marcussen (10), S. Johnson-Lacoss (12). The second bronze medal was awarded to senior I. Kim in the Mixed Saber event. This is great momentum for the team as they prepare for their next competitions on Sunday, Oct. 14, when the teams will be participating in the USFA Mixed Novice and Women’s U Foil tournament and the Men’s USFA U Foil tournament.
