The Champs Are Here

The men did their part on Thursday and Friday. The Penn State women finished the job over the weekend, winning two of three individual titles to give the combined Nittany Lion fencing team its 11th national championship. Penn State finished the NCAA meet with 195 points, 13 ahead of runner-up Notre Dame. Big Ten rivals Ohio State finished third.

Sophomore Doris Willette (who we featured in the Jan/Feb ’08 issue of The Penn Stater) twice defeated Harvard’s Olympian Emily Cross en route to the foil title, doubling up on the individual championship she won as a freshman in 2007 (Willette redshirted last year). And junior Anastasia Ferdman, already a two-time All-American in epee, won her first national title.
