The Harvard men’s team collectively had a strong day by any metric, with three fencers earning medals and several others turning in fine performances as well. The Crimson had its strongest day on the foil side, with sophomore Michael Woo and junior Brian Kaneshige taking silver and bronze, respectively. Woo claimed eight bouts as well as the best indicator of the medal round pool.
Junior Alexander Ryjik earned the last of three medals for the Harvard men with a 7-4 bout record in the final round of sabre. The bronze was the second career NCAA regional medal for the Alexandria, Va. native.
On the épeé side, the senior-freshman duo of Michael Raynis and Alexander Eldeib took sixth and seventh, respectively. The former finished his day with 17 total wins, and the latter had 15.
According to Brand, both will likely qualify for the championships.Now all that’s left for the season for both squads is a plane ride to Columbus, Ohio for collegiate fencing’s biggest competition.
“We have a very, very strong contingent [of fencers] going into [NCAA’s],” Brand said. “We certainly have some really good contenders for the individual title.”
