CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham faced off against their conference rival, Randolph, at its first home meet at the high school main gym. The men’s saber squad did well, winning two of their three bouts in the first two frames. Miles Chrusciel won both of his bouts. The young saber alternates went in the third round to get some experience for the upcoming years.

Foil had a tough day and was not able to secure any wins till the last round. Epee faired the same and was only able to pull a win in the last round as well.  

The women’s match was a nail biter to the end. The saber squad went 8 and 1. Captain Olivia Fontes and sophomore Jess Pompeo both won all three of their bouts. Junior Celine Devine won two of her three. An excellent performance. The foil squad had a tougher time and while they fought hard and had some close bouts, they were not able to secure a win. The epee squad also fought hard, winning three in the first two frames to keep the girls in it.
Captain Justine Hsu won two of her three bouts and Judy Lim celebrated her first undefeated day as a starter. The match went all the way to the last round.
Women, lost at 14-11, final score 14-13
