Skilled and lucky 13 named All-Ivy fencers

One month after capturing Ivy League championships, the Harvard men’s and women’s fencing teams placed 13 athletes on the All-Ivy squads, including seven first-team picks. On the men’s team, the first-team selections are Tim Hagamen ’07 in sabre and Kai Itameri-Kinter ’09 in foil. The second-team selections are saberists Daniel Sachs ’07 and David Jakus ’06; epeeist Benjamin Ungar ’08; and Sam Cross ’07 in the foil. All six will be in action next weekend in the NCAA championships in Houston.

Named to the women’s first team were Crimson foilists Emily Cross ’08, Anne Austin ’06, and Chloe Stinetorf ’06; epeeist Jasmine McGlade ’07; and saberist Carolyn Wright. Alexa Weingarden ’08 and Maria Larsson ’09 were second-team selections in sabre and epee, respectively. Six of the above-mentioned will represent Harvard at the NCAA championships.

Gators out-bash Crimson baseball

A heavy-hitting University of Florida baseball team tallied 18 hits on Sunday (March 12) to earn a three-game weekend sweep against the visiting Crimson. Harvard scored a pair of runs in the top of the third to tie the score, 3-3, before the 13th-ranked Gators (14-6) exploded for 4 and 7 runs in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively, on their way to the 17-6 win. The Crimson club (0-3) will look for its first win of the ’06 season this weekend against New York Institute of Technology (3-3) in Old Westbury, N.Y.
