SOMERSET HILLS NJ - The Bernards High School boys fencing team had a disappointing 12-15 loss against St. Peter’s Prep in the State Semi-Finals.  Bernards was missing its starting epee squad, Zack Yung, Aiden Banyon-Mrak and Jack Werrell, which had placed first at the Cetrulo tournament and in the District 2 tournament, but had to miss the semi-final due to a conflict with the epee event at the Junior Olympics in Kansas City.  The remaining team pulled together but was unable to defeat St. Peter's.  The saber squad contributed 2 wins (Vaughn Rice-1; Matt Monteverde-1); foil squad 6 wins (Kieran Farrell-2; Matthew Jacobs-3; Graham Brady-1); and the epee squad had 4 wins  (David Hu-1; Jameson Matinho-2;  Rafay Chaudhry-1). Teammates Vaughn Rice and Matthew Jacobs, as well as Caroline Sullivan and Edith Po from the girls team will also compete in the Junior Olympic events this weekend. The boys fencing team will reconvene on Wednesday, February 22nd to battle Wayne Hills for 3rd place at Morris Hills High School.
