DURHAM, N.C. – Following an undefeated weekend at the Philadelphia Invitational and a week off from competition, the Duke fencing team will be back in action at the Northwestern Duals for a two-day meet in Evanston, Ill.

This will be the toughest weekend so far for the eighth-ranked Blue Devil women and 10th-ranked men as they will face eight teams tabbed in the top 10 of the CollegeFencing360 Coaches Poll. The women are slated to take on No. 1 Notre Dame, No. 2 Northwestern, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 6 Princeton and No. 10 Temple while the men will also battle the top-ranked Irish, No. 5 Princeton and No. 7 Ohio State.

Duke has been led by an array of freshmen in epeeist Ava Navarro (19-3), foilist Zoe Superville (19-6), epeeist Huda Aldadah (18-6), saberist Alex Gorman (18-6) and saberist Terence Lee (17-4).

A complete schedule of this weekend’s events and the competing Blue Devils can be found below. Live stats throughout the event can be found here.
