RANDOLPH, NJ- With the conclusion of states this past weekend, the RHS Fencing season has officially ended. Four out of the six fencing squads qualified for states this year, including boys’ foil, boys’ épée, boys’ sabre, and girls’ sabre. Boys’ foil and épée came in 17th place, and are now currently ranked 17th in the state. Boys’ sabre finished 20th.

Girls’ sabre placed 14th, but could have come in 11th by one bout. Head coach Mark Kuschke said “My favorite bout was the last bout of the day where the girls fenced Kent Place and our B and C strip won against them, and then Kent Place came in second overall, so that made me feel great”.

Sabre coach Adam Dorfman has both of his squads (girls and boys sabre) qualify for states. On his squads’ accomplishments this season, he stated, “The boys has a crucial win against Chatham this year that had them win 14-13. The boys got 4th at districts and are the top 20th team in the state. The girls won districts and got second place at counties”.

The girls’ team placed second in their conference this year and the boys placed third. While this was a great season, foil Coach Mitch Dorfman is confident that the team will be able to improve more for next season. For his thoughts on this season, Coach Dorfman said “I look at this year as a year of near misses. Both the girls and boys were second in the conference. A little more focus may have led first place finishes. We have our work cut out for next year.”

States marks the end to a great fencing season, and for seniors, their last fencing tournament as high schoolers. When asked about her final fencing season, senior foil and head girls’ captain Sydni Nadler stated “I am so proud to be the captain of this incredible team, as coming in second in conference is a huge accomplishment. I am proud to see where our team will go after our current seniors graduate.”

The diner became a ...
