Fencing Field Set for Championships

2010 NCAA Fencing Bids Announced

INDIANAPOLIS—The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Fencing Committee has announced the field of 144 competitors that will participate in the 2010 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships. Harvard University will host the championships at the Gordon Track Center, March 25-28, in Boston, Massachusetts.

Fencers will compete in a round-robin format of five-touch bouts. After the round-robin, the top-four fencers fence semifinal 15-touch bouts, with the winners fencing to determine first and second places, and the losers being awarded a tie for third place. Absolute ties for the seeding will be broken as follows: for positions one through three, by a coin toss; for position four, by a fence-off.

The National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships include individual events in each of the six weapons (women’s foil, women’s epee, women’s sabre, men’s foil, men’s epee, men’s sabre).

An institution’s place finish in the championships will be based on points earned by each individual. A team will be awarded one point for each victory by its student-athletes for the duration of the championships.
