NCAA men’s and women’s Fencing Committee selects championships participants

NCAA Fencing

INDIANAPOLIS — NCAA Men’s and Women’s Fencing Committee has announced the field of 144 competitors who will participate in 2019 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships. Twenty-six member institutions will be represented at this year’s fencing championships. Cleveland State and Greater Cleveland Sports Commission will co-host championships at Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio, March 21-24, 2019. 

National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships include individual events in each of six weapons (men’s épée, men’s foil, men’s sabre, women’s épée, women’s foil and women’s sabre). 

Fencers will compete in a round-robin format of five-touch bouts. After round robin, top- four finishers in each weapon will fence in semifinal 15-touch bouts, with winners fencing to determine first and second places, and non-advancing fencers being awarded a tie for third place. 

An institution’s place finish in championships will be based on points earned by each individual. A team will be awarded one point for each victory by its student-athletes for the duration of championships. 

The following individuals were selected to participate in this year’s championships:
