The Blue Knights hosted a dual meet this past Wednesday, December 1, against Catholic Memorial and Stevenson. While there were no direct elimination rounds or seedings after pool rounds this meet, all of the fencers were outstanding. 

Junior Connor Artley achieved two wins this meet, and his teammate, sophomore Sohum Sharma, came very close to winning a few of his bouts. The BA men’s sabre competitors did exceptionally well. 

In the women’s foil event, senior Ruthie Yu won two bouts. Sophomore Madison Kob won three, and her teammate Eleanor Plamann, a new fencer, earned her first win this past week as well. 

Sophomore Tyler Riederer, the sole BA representative in men’s foil, gained two wins against tough competition. 

For the men’s epee event, junior Isaac Jansen won an impressive four bouts, while freshman Harrison Koss won three. Beginner fencer, freshman Camden Pifel, also received a well-deserved win.

The team started with a 43-35 victory over local rival St Dominic. Raghav Vijayapal and Eddie Schoyer led the offense, both scoring in double figures. The team then ran into a buzz saw with its matchup against Holy Apostles, who went on to win the tournament. Although we lost the game 46-23, the team showed great heart and character after falling behind 11-0. Garrett Priebe led the way with his aggressive play. 

The team capped off the tournament with a hard fought win over St Matthias 39-33. Tyler Fletcher was tasked with guarding the best player the team has faced so far this year, and he stepped up to the challenge. 

Offensively, there were great contributions from the whole team as our crisp passing forced St Matthias players to abandon their zone defense early in the game. While St Matthias came back to within one point in the final minute, our boys rose to the challenge and pressed on to victory.

The Blue team began its season with a 53-29 victory on the road against Christian Education Leadership Academy (CELA) this past Thursday.

After some first game jitters, the team settled down and went on a run.

Point guard and leading scorer, Tyler Grande, controlled the game nicely for BA, having just one turnover in his 22 minutes of action.

Talal Sana added 18 points on offense, while Beau Libbey frustrated the opposing team's point guard by playing great defense.

The play of the night belonged to Lincoln Weil, as he secured an offensive rebound and then made a shot that hit the top of the backboard before falling through the net.

The Blue team begins league play Saturday, December 11, at Christ King. Tip-off is scheduled for 10:15 am.
