"I am very proud of the girls team and we showed that we are an elite team in New Jersey, Captain, Brooke Stanicki said. "It was a grueling day of fencing and the sabre results were  really impressive.  Marta and Rachel pulled out some good wins in foil and our epee team did really well to place in the top 10.  We are looking forward to the Districts this weekend  and the competition will be equally tough since our District is one of  toughest in the State."

The boys team placed 18th  overall out of 47 teams  in the Cetrulo Tournament. The foil team placed 9th overall.  Columbia won its fifth consecutive Cetrulo title by one point over second-place Ridge.

"We were missing a couple of fencers but the team stepped up to the plate. To get into the top 20 was pretty solid," Captain, Dominic Heise said. "It was a very long day of fencing but I think we all gained a lot of experience heading into Districts this weekend. We are going to lay it all on the line and see what happens."
