No. 10 Duke Nets Four Wins at Home Meet
Saturday 02/08/2014  -  Duke Sports Information
DURHAM, N.C. – The No. 10 Duke men’s fencing team went 4-1 at the Duke Home Meet on the strength of undefeated performances from the epees and saber squads Saturday in Card Gym.

Led by a near flawless 13-1 performance by senior Alessio Santoro and a 9-1 day from Dylan Nollner, the epees went undefeated in Duke’s victories over Air Force (17-10), MIT (19-8), North Carolina (19-8) and Johns Hopkins (18-9). In Duke’s lone loss to Brandeis (12-15), both the epees and sabers won their respective bouts.

The 4-1 team performance comes on the heels of the Northwestern Duals where Duke upset No. 4 Notre Dame and No. 10 Stanford. The four wins improve Duke’s season record to 19-6 on the year.

Duke freshman Christopher Monti turned in a 10-3 record in leading the sabers to a 5-0 performance. He ended the day with wins in eight of his final nine bouts. Sophomore Charles Copti also contributed with an 8-4 mark.

In foil action, Rod Shayesteh led the way with eight wins while Chris Sullivan went 4-0 in spot duty and freshmen Joseph Lam and Alexander Szilagyi combined to go 12-8.

Day two of the Duke Home Meet begins Sunday at 8 a.m. and will pit the Duke women’s team against Air Force, MIT, North Carolina, Brandeis and Johns Hopkins.
