DURHAM, N.C. -- GoDuke.com caught up with junior fencer Becca Ward a week after she claimed her second women's saber National championship.

Ward won her second national championship after defeating Princeton's Eliza Stone 15-12 in the finals of the 2011 NCAA Fencing Women's Saber Championship last Sunday at Ohio State University.

With the title bout tied at 12-12 in the first-to-15-points final, Ward locked in and scored the final three touches to give Duke its third individual NCAA Fencing Championship and its first multiple winner.

The Portland, Ore. native, became the first Duke fencer to win multiple national championships, the ninth women's fencer in NCAA history to win two NCAA titles and only the second women's saber to achieve that feat.
