The North Carolina women's fencing team faced off against different universities from across the country on Saturday in the Penn State Open.
UNC had 15 fencers participate in the three different events. First-year foiler Carlexa Fevry placed highest for the Tar Heels, earning a fifth-place finish in the women’s foil event.
Who stood out?
Fevry was the most successful, as she was the only member of UNC’s squad to place in the top 10 in any event.
The first-year Tar Heel eliminated Anna Zhou from Yale in the table of 16, but was eliminated by the Pennsylvania’s Nicole Vaiani in the table of eight.
When was it decided?
As the first contest of the event was fencing, Fevry set the bar high with her fifth-place finish.
