Due to Covid college (and high school) fencers have not competed in about 1 year. That all changes tomorrow, with Covid protection rules. OHIO State will be hosting a 10 team ‘dual meet’ format competition over the weekend.

My saber girl Dasha is on the bus now with the Notre Dame traveling varsity team. This will be her first college event, she made Varsity as a freshman, and is now ranked #3 on the team, but sprained her ankle early this week so she is going into her first ever collegiate event with a minor injury.

Some of the bouts will be live-streamed by Ohio State because there will be NO SPECTATORS in attendance. Pretty safe to say that the Ohio State vs Notre Dame bouts will be on the live stream. For anyone who wants to watch some of the best fencers in the world, ND vs Ohio State will start at 9:30am Eastern time.

The lovely Mrs_Bob and I will be in Columbus until Tuesday but will be watching the event on livestream because despite the fact that I’m a USFA Coach, I’m still not allowed inside the competition area.

I hope this isn't what her fencing competitions turn into now that Biden is letting the boys compete as girls:

Honestly I see it as a potential future issue. Not this year, as teams are set. Not even next year, as recruitment for incoming freshman is already completed. Probably not her Junior year as much of the scouting for that is started, but it’s possible. But by her senior year we could begin to see effects at NCAA events.

7wins, 2 losses today. Best performance of anyone in the Women’s Saber squad. Only a freshman ... on one of the top teams in the nation.
