Fencers, Wrestlers Meet
The varsity fencing team, selected by a pre-Intercollegiate coaches meeting as a "sleeper" team, overslept this weekend and placed only ninth in a field of twelve squads in New York. Fencing 33 bouts in each event, the varsity won 15 in epee, 14 in foil, and 13 in sabre.
In epee, the squad was the most consistent, as Doug Fitchen, Bob Scrivner, and Tony Enders each won five of eleven. In foil, only Bill Trebilcock in the third pool fenced well, as he won six and dropped five.
The sabre team was most disappointing, as Dave Silbert (ill most of the tournament) and Mike Woolf won only one of eleven in the first pool.
The varsity wrestling team's five points placed it eleventh out of eighteen teams in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association Tournament at Penn State Saturday.
Only Joe Noble, Bob Foster, and Bob Gilmor could advance beyond the preliminaries. Noble, at 147, scored a quick pin over Don Resnick of Temple in the first round, decisioned Yale's captain, Phil Hepner, 6 to 1 in the second, but lost in the quarterfinals, 9 to 0, to Lehigh's Dick Santora.
Foster, after a first round bye, pinned Fred Schult of Colgate, but suffered his first defeat of the season, losing to Rutgers' captain, Neal Lesher, 10 to 6, in the quarters.
