Though captain Rebecca Moss was unable to fence due to a back injury, she is confident to be back in action next weekend. She had this to say about the evenings’ competition: 

“A lot of girls lost of some really close bouts tonight but we still were able to pull out a solid victory in the end. For our next meet at NYU we really need to be at the top of our game. Each person losing one or two close bouts could be the difference between a team victory or loss. For the next few days we are going to spend a lot of time working on handling the pressure of really tight matches.”

The Bulldogs will travel to New York City next weekend to compete against top teams at the NYU Invitational.
