This upcoming Saturday, the Red fencing team won’t be dressing up in spooky costumes or putting on crazy makeup. No, the Red will be making a trip down to Philadelphia where they will compete in the the Temple Open meet. The Open features many of the top fencerss in the nation, and will be a great test to open the year for Cornell. The Temple Open meet, hosted by Temple University in Philadelphia, is an individual meet, but Cornell’s team makes the trip every year to compete together against hundreds of collegiate fencers from across the East coast. Last year at the meet, Cornell had their best showing yet, with three women earning medals at the event.
