It was a great weekend for high school fencing in New Jersey. The top 16 squads in each of the three weapons fenced each other to determine who would be crowned the state’s Squad Champion. Congrats to Northern Highlands Girls for winning foil AND saber and to Bernards for claiming another state epee title. Congrats to Montclair Boys for their epee title (and a shout out to Gabe Canaux for making the Cadet World Team!), to Columbia Boys as saber championships, and to Hunterdon Central Boys as foil champs. A special congrats to Pompton Lakes on their bronze medal in epee, their first state placement in 10 years! Our production team was following this great group of guys on Sunday and below is a photo of our crew and the epee squad with Coach Owens.
The season isn’t over yet. Wednesday night features the NJSIAA Team matches for bronze and gold at Morris Hills High School. Columbia Boys will face Watchung Hills for the gold and favored Northern Highlands Girls will face Montgomery for the state title. Bronze medal matches will begin the night with Millburn Boys taking on Ridge and Columbia Girls versus Livingston.
