STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – The Duke men’s and women’s fencing teams are set to kick off the 2018 season Sunday, Jan. 14 at the Penn State Duals. Both squads will match up against host-team Penn State, Columbia, Haverford, North Carolina and Penn. Additionally, the women will face off against Temple.

Competition will commence at 8:30 a.m., in the Mary B. White Building on Penn State’s campus.

The men’s saber squad is coming off an impressive 2016-17 season and will be represented by senior Pascual Di Tella, sophomores Duncan De Caire and Agoston Walter and rookie Ping Ping Kitsiriboon, while the women’s lineup features seniors Haley Fisher, Jennifer Ling and Natalie Moszczynski and sophomore Lindsay Sapienza.

Last year, Di Tella was named ACC Men’s Fencing Scholar-Athlete of the Year, received ACC Men’s Fencer of the Year for Saber accolades and captured gold in the individual portion of the men’s saber competition at the ACC Championships. For the women, Sapienza took silver at the conference championships and qualified for NCAAs as a freshman.

Bryn Hammarberg, Dean Ischiropoulos, Dakota Nollner, Amit Sarma, Camille Esnault, Claudia Wrampelmeier, Maria Papadopoulos and Kendyl Bree look to show off Duke’s epeeists. Hammarberg and Esnault garnered All-American accolades last season at the NCAA Tournament and look to continue their successes this campaign.

Wrapping up the squad are foilists Jan Maceczek, Eoin Gronningsater, Jonathan Schwartzman, Brycen Rushing, Kristen Coury, Zuzu Tang, Rhiannon Harvey and Julia Gianneschi. Gronningsater led the men’s foil squad as a freshman with an impressive 43-9 record and finished just short of All-America status.
