NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The sabre squad won seven of nine bouts to lead Yale past Rutgers, 16-11, on Saturday at Payne Whitney Gymnasium. Senior saberist Genevieve Tauxe set the pace by posting a perfect 3-0 record. Rutgers did find success with the epee, however, notching a 9-0 mark.
Freshman Katherine Arden and junior Erin Frey both won two bouts to add to Tauxe's three victories, as the sabre squad rolled to a 7-2 record.
Since Rutgers could not field a full foil squad, they were forced to forfeit six bouts. Freshman Lidia Gocheva, junior Diana Schawlowski and senior Alisa Mendelsohn all won their only bout to give the squad a 9-0 record on the day.
The win brings the Bulldogs' overall record to 5-1.
Yale travels to New York for the NYU Invitational on Sunday, January 28th.
