Whitman senior Alexandra Alpy is having another great year as the premier Epee fencer for the Wildcats. “Alex took second place in the Brentwood Holiday Tournament,” said varsity girls coach Barton Allen. “She then went on to place 24th in the USA Fencing Association Junior tournament.”

Topping out at the other fencing weapons for Whitman is Isabel Sakarin at Saber, and according to coach Allen, Whitman junior Kayla Soulias is the strongest foil fencer for the lady Wildcats. “All of the girls work hard and are very competitive,” said coach Allen. “They excel academically, we probably have one of the highest grade point averages of any of our sports teams.” Captains Alexandra Alpy, Isabel Sakarin and Haley Gladitsch, all seniors who possess dedicated leadership talent, work hard with their younger fencers helping them to progress and be competitive. “They’re a great group of girls who try hard and never give up,’ said coach Allen.

Come out and support both our girls and boys fencing teams at their home meet in Whitman’s south gymnasium today, Thursday, January 29th at 6PM.
