DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke senior epee Alessio Santoro was named Ronald McDonald House Charities Duke Student-Athlete of the Week after finishing tied for third at the NCAA Fencing Championships.

Santoro logged a 17-6 record in the round-robin portion of competition with his 17 wins and +21 touch differential tops among the epee field and enough to vault him into the medal round where he fell in the semifinal, 15-8, to eventual national epee champion Yevgeniy Karyuchenko of St. John’s. Santoro’s finish was the highest by a Duke men’s fencer since Jeremy Kahn won the national title in men’s epee in 1996.

Santoro becomes the third Blue Devil men’s fencer to post a top-four finish at the NCAA Championships, joining Kahn and Matt Andresen (fourth place in 1989), who were also epee fencers. He finished the season with a 52-22 record for the Blue Devils.
