The NCAA Men’s and Women’s Fencing Committee has announced the field of 144 competitors who will participate in the 2016 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships. Brandeis University will host the championships at Gosman Sports and Convocation Center in Waltham, Massachusetts.
The National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Championships include individual events in each of the six weapons (men’s épée, men’s foil, men’s sabre, women’s épée, women’s foil and women’s sabre).
Fencers will compete in a round-robin format of five-touch bouts. After the round-robin, the top-four finishers in each weapon will fence in semifinal 15-touch bouts, with the winners fencing to determine first and second places, and the non-advancing fencers being awarded a tie for third place.
A live feed of the semi-final and final bouts will be available on ESPN3 or the WatchESPN App. The semi-finals and finals, along with other championships highlights will air on ESPNU at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time on April 6.
