The Duke men defeated Drew 25-2 and Haverford 21-6 while falling 15-12 to Penn and 14-13 to Columbia. The women recorded wins of 24-3 over Haverford and 24-3 over Drew while falling 16-11 to Temple, 14-13 to Penn and 14-13 to Columbia.

Duke’s women’s epee squad was a perfect 5-0 on the day with all three fencers recording double-digit wins. Senior captain and two-time All-America Emily D’Agostino notched a squad-best 14-1 record while freshman Isabella Barna posted a 13-2 mark and sophomore Sarah Collins went 10-5.

The Duke men’s sabers, led by senior captain Anthony Lin who finished the day 6-3, defeated all four opponents thanks to a 9-2 performance from freshman Charles Copti. Matching Lin’s 6-3 record was sophomore Eugene Chung, while sophomore Colin Colter also turned in a winning mark at 5-2.

Other notable performances for the Duke women include senior saber Sean Cadley (14-1) and junior saber Kodia Baye-Cigna (11-4) who both notched double-digit wins.
