KASIA NIXON ’20 won the women’s epee title at the NCAA Fencing Championships March 23, defeating Veronika Zuikova of St. John’s in the final, 15–13. It was Nixon’s first NCAA appearance. She won 17 of 23 bouts in the round-robin competition to advance to the semifinals, where she scored a 15–7 win against Harvard’s Cindy Gao.
MAIA CHAMBERLAIN ’20 won the women’s saber title at the NCAA Fencing Championships, defeating Penn State’s Zara Moss in the final, 15–11. Paired with Nixon’s epee victory, it was the first time that Princeton won two NCAA individual titles in the same year. Chamberlain, a semifinalist in 2017, said she drew inspiration from her teammate’s win. “It was more motivation for me to do the same,” she told GoPrincetonTigers.com. “If she could do it, I could do it too.”
