Notre Dame Fencers Continue Unbeaten Season

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Notre Dame men's and women's fencing team extended their unbeaten season with victories over Harvard today. The men defeated Harvard 16-11 while the women posted a 24-8 win.

The men's team was led by junior All-American Luke LaValle. LaValle, the sabre captain for the Irish, went 3-0 against the Crimson and is now 12-0 on the season. Sophomore foilist Charles Hayes posted two wins against no losses improving his season mark to 17-3.

An undefeated trio paced the women's victory. The foil team was led two 4-0 performances from All-Americans Myriah Brown and Sara Walsh. Brown is 22-3 on the season while Walsh is 13-3. Senior captain Anne Hoos registered a 4-0 mark for the women's epee team. Hoos is leading the women's teams in victoires with her 28-5 record.

"I'm pleased with the results," said Notre Dame head coach Yves Auriol. "Harvard has several great fencers, and our intensity was very good in all five weapons."

Tomorrow the Irish fencers will compete at Brandeis facing the host school along with Boston College, Duke, NYU and North Carolina.

"It will be a very long day tomorrow," said Auriol. "If we fence with this intensity, we should be alright."
