Brandeis men’s fencing were unable to repeat last year’s success at the second annual Boston Beanpot Fencing championships, opening up with a 15-12 victory over MIT before bowing to Boston College 12-15 and Harvard 11-16. Will Friedman ’09 had a good performance in the losing effort, the All-American foilist finished with a 7-2 record for the evening.

The women’s squad had a better run in the championship, knocking out Boston College 17-10 and MIT 19-8 but had to settle for second place once again as defending champions Harvard once again proved too strong, falling 7-20 to the Crimson. Caitlin Kozel ’09 finished with a 6-2 record in the epee while saber fencer Anna Henley ’11 finished 8-1.

The men’s squad is now 6-2 for the season, the women are 8-1. The Judges fencers return to action on December 7 as they host the Brandeis Invitational. Brandeis will take on Brown, Cornell, St. John’s, and Yale starting at 9 am.
