"It feels really weird graduating from the team because my family has been with the team since I was like nine, so it feels really weird saying goodbye cause the team and the coaches are really like a family to me," said Fan, "I've seen the team go through the highs and lows. I really have faith in them. I'm gonna miss it."

"I'm excited for what's going to come. My little brother is on the team, so I'll still be around," Choudhuri said, "I think they're going to do really well. It's kind of sad to be leaving the team, but it was a fun ride"

"I'm really sad. I love this team. It's really good for growth, and it's a really good community and family and everyone just loves each other. I'm really sad." said McCabe

"This has a been a good team. I liked it here even if it was only for two years. It's been a fun experience fencing and messing around with the rest of them. Definitely," said Lim.

The girls won their meet 18-9. Onelli won all three of her bouts for girls sabre. Fan went 2-1 for girls foil. Zheng and McCabe went 2-1 and 1-2 respectively for épée.
