Yale Falls to Brandeis, 14-13

Jan. 22, 2004

Despite undefeated performances in foil by Alisa Mendelsohn and Katharine Schemmer, the Elis narrowly fell to Brandeis in Waltham, Mass., falling 14-13.

The Elis dominated foil, winning 7-2 with Mendelsohn and Schemmer both going 3-0 in thier bouts. But a poor performance in saber, where Brandeis won 7-2, cancelled out the Elis finish.

In the decisive Epee category, Brandeis edged the Elis 5-4 for the narrow victory.

The Elis will travel to Poughkeepsie, NY to face Vassar and Rutgers on Saturday.
