The BA fencing team participated in the first half of the Conference Duals at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Ill., on Saturday. In team meets, fencers compete in teams of four, and each member of the team fences each member of the other team. BA entered four teams, in the men's and women's épée and men's and women's foil events.

The women's épée team, consisting of freshman Skye McCoy, sophomore Katie Polster, junior Jemma Kloss and senior Clare Urbanski, did remarkably well, beating four of the five teams they fenced. Both the men's and women's épée teams were victorious over local rival Catholic Memorial.
