Becca Ward was named Ronald McDonald House Duke Student-Athlete of the Week after posting a perfect 15-0 record at the Duke Fencing Home Meet in Card Gym, improving her season record to 69-1.

Ward, a two-time NCAA Champion who is 260-7 in her four-year career, swept all three opponents she faced including the three sabers from defending NCAA Champion and top-ranked Penn State. Behind her perfect 15-0 score, Duke's sabers led all teams at the meet in victories and secured the Duke Home Meet's Saber Cup.

The Duke women are 22-4 overall on the season and have already set the school's single-season wins record.

Ward and the Blue Devils will compete at the Junior Olympics this Friday through Monday in Dallas, Texas.
