In addition, foil went 24–3, along with epee carrying out a 24–7 advantage.
On the men’s side, the Tritons were equally dominant, as they secured comfortable victories against Arizona State (25–2), Caltech (22–5) and UC Irvine (24–3).The foilists ended the day with a perfect record of 27–0; their saber teammates also asserted themselves and concluded the match with a score of 24–3 while epee went 20–7.
Both Triton teams will be back in action and looking to keep their streak of 11 consecutive league titles alive next week on Feb. 20 when they compete at the Intercollegiate Fencing Conference of Southern California Championships at Caltech.
