STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Through three rounds of pool play at the NCAA Fencing Championships, Duke is currently in 14th place in the team standings with 11 points.

Notre Dame and Columbia are tied for first in the team standings with 56 points, followed by Penn State (52), Ohio State (51) and St. John’s (43) to round out the top five.

Representing the Blue Devil women today on the strips was junior Rhiannon Harvey and freshman Julia Gianneschi.

Gianneschi, a native of Atlanta, Ga., owns 17th place through the first three rounds with six victories. Harvey currently sits in 20th with five wins.

Gianneschi and Harvey will compete in their final eight bouts in pool play in their respective weapons and will attempt to move up the leaderboard with their focus on a top-four spot. The four fencers in each weapon with the best marks will advance to the semifinals of a single-elimination bracket of 15-touch bouts.

The semifinal and championship bouts will be aired on ESPN3 beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The men will hit the strips to compete on Saturday and Sunday.
