Fencing

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

With a team made up of 6 Freshman, 2 first year Sophomores, 7 returning Sophomores, 4 Juniors and 1 Senior, we'll call this year a building year. As most of the team was new we focused a lot on training. Our record of 4 wins, 9 loses doesn't show a clear picture of what we really accomplished. The majority of our losses this year were very close, losing by 1, 2 or 3 bouts. Many bouts were lost by only 1 touch and many meets were lost by small margins with key starters out sick. Many new girls stepped up and won when filing in for sick teammates, while others moved into starting positions. This shows great potential for the future. So, as always we will endeavor to persevere.
