DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s and women’s fencing teams head north this Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 25-26, to participate in the Philadelphia Invitational, hosted by Penn at The Coach Dave Micahnik Fencing Center.

The Blue Devil men open the competition Saturday against Lafayette, Drew, Haverford, Sacred Heart, No. 8 Penn and NJIT, while the women take the strip Sunday against NJIT, Haverford, Cornell, Sacred Heart and No. 8 Penn.
