Yale Falls to Tournament Champs

NEW HAVEN, Conn—Yale men's fencing suffered one more loss Sunday on the road to a 0-5 overall record at this year's Ivy League Championship in Providence, R.I.

After struggling yesterday, Yale looked to rebound in the second day of competition. The Bulldogs faced off against Columbia, losing 20-7.

Yale can take solace in some good individual performances from the Championship tournament.  Junior Hugh O'Cinneide, with the saber, finished 9-6, good for fifth place overall. In epee, seniors Peter Cohen and Benjamin Mappin-Kasirer both finished 6-8, tying for twelfth overall.

Columbia and Harvard shared the Ivy League title, finished with 5-1 records. Columbia defeated Harvard 13-12, but lost to Princeton 14-13. It was Columbia's 35th title all-time and Harvard's eighth.

Yale now looks to the Feb. 23 USAG Collegiate Nationals in Philadelphia, PA.
