PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Duke women's saber Sean Cadley was a perfect 18-0 and the women's and men's epees went undefeated to lead the Blue Devils to six overall wins at the Philadelphia Invitational on Saturday in the Temple Student Pavilion.

The Duke women (5-6) finished 3-3 on the day, while the ninth-ranked men (5-4) went 3-2. Both the women's epee squad and women's epee squad went undefeated at 6-0 and 5-0, respectively, while the men's and women's sabers lost just one bout each. Team scores from the event are not yet available.

Cadley, a senior from New York, N.Y., defeated all 18 opponents she faced at the six-team competition to improve her season record to 32-1. Her performance, along with a 13-5 showing from fellow saber Kodia Baye-Cigna, led the Duke women's sabers to a 5-1 record on the day and gave the women's sabers a winning record in the second straight meet.

Two-time All-America epee Emily D'Agostino led the women's epees to a perfect 6-0 record, posting a 14-4 record to match that of her freshman teammate and fellow epee Isabella Barna. Sophomore Sarah Collins also notched double-digit victories with an 11-7 record.

On the men's side, the epees used the lineup of Alessio Santoro, Josiah Brown and Edward Chen to go 5-0. Chen led the group with a 12-3 record while Brown and Santoro went 10-5. Chen leads the epees with an 18-3 record through two weeks of competition.

Sophomore Charles Copti continued to pace the sabers, finishing 11-4 in leading the group to a 4-1 record. Copti is 20-6 through Duke's first two meets. All four sabers had winning records, including Senior captain Anthony Lin who went 7-4 and freshman Colin Colter who was 9-6.

Up next for Duke will be the MIT Duals on Sunday, Feb. 3, followed by the two-day Duke Home Meet on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 9-10 in Card Gym.
