One of only 7 high school fencing teams in Bergen County, our program has consistently garnered local and state recognition, winning many League titles as well as State District championships. Dedicated to the improvement of our talented club fencers as well as the inexperienced novice students of the sport, we pride ourselves in attaining a true team atmosphere where everyone helps each other to become better and stronger fencers.  We are proud to host the Bergen County Tournament each January and strive to bring fencing the recognition it deserves in our County and State. Many of our graduates have gone on to fence at the collegiate level with highly competitive programs such as Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins, Northeastern and NYU.  

Year in Review

The 2016/17 Fencing team started the season with 9 girls returning from last year, giving us almost a full lineup.  With 15 new faces to help fill the gaps, we were off to a good start with a lot of teaching, a lot of learning, and a lot of pushing forward. The girls worked hard and fenced even harder, winning 7 meets , while losing 6. The Sabre squad placed 4th in the State qualifying District Tournament, while Foil and Epee missed by just one spot. Junior Mary Haws made 1st team All League and Senior Jessica Schwanwede was named to the 2nd team. Senior Emily Mills received all league honorable mention.
