Tritons slicing: UCSD lady fencers fight for fivepeat

If you want to antagonize a fencer, just pose like a teapot.

“They do the cringy ‘en guarde’ with the pose,” Emily Beihold said, quickly striking a pose seen in children’s movies well before anything atop the piste.

Even if her fellow Tritons can’t identify the maneuvers, game of any kind respects game. And the ladies of UC San Diego’s fencing squad can put their hair up and square up with anyone. Coming off of big wins in their first organized tournament, the team is well on their way to a potential fifth straight conference championship.

“It’s really exciting to be a part of the group,” fencer Amelia Harrison said.
