PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The Duke men’s and women’s fencing team concluded competition in the Philadelphia Invitational Saturday afternoon undefeated at the Tse Ping-Cheng Cheung Ling Sports Center on Penn’s campus.

The eighth-ranked Duke women picked up wins over Sacred Heart (25-2), Brown (21-8) and Penn (14-13) while the 10th-ranked men secured victories against Haverford (21-6), Brown (19-8) and Penn (16-11). The wins over Penn marked the second-consecutive week the Blue Devils have defeated the Quakers.

Duke was unable to face Cornell, NJIT and Yale due to inclement weather impacting the state of Pennsylvania.

The men’s contingent was led by foilist Brycen Rushing and epeeist Joe Choo who each logged an 8-1 overall ledger while junior foilist Eoin Gronningsater posted a flawless 5-0 record.

For the second weekend in a row, freshman epeeist Huda Aldadah was one of Duke’s top performers with a 7-1 record, followed by Julia Gianneschi (6-1), Zoe Superville (6-1) and Rhiannon Harvey (5-1).

The Blue Devils will have a week off before traveling to Evanston, Ill., for a two-day meet at the Northwestern Duals.
