UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Elis competed in the Garret Open, hosted by Penn State University. This was an individual competition in which members of the Yale team performed well, with many of them winning enough to compete in the round of direct elimination bouts.

Over one half of the epee squad, Jonathan Xu, Malcolm Miller, Skyler Chin, and Jayson Thompson placed in the top sixteen, with a standout performance from Jonathan Xu, who ultimately placed sixth.

On the foil squad, in his first tournament as a Yale fencer, Cameron Allen placed sixth overall in a field of strong competitors. Paul Won also succeeded in making it to the direct elimination round.

On the saber squad, both Walter Musgrave and Sam Rooney continued onto the final round.
