The foil, épée, and saber boys’ varsity A fencing teams all won the titles of their respective leagues.

The foil team, consisting of three fencers, won its tournament March 6 at Victor Valley High School. The épée and saber teams won their league titles April 17 at Chaminade High School.

The boys’ foil varsity team B, placed in second, and girls’ foil varsity team A placed third in its division.

Several other Harvard-Westlake teams competed in saber and épée.

“We came together as a group and had really good team spirit in an individualistic sport,” varsity a foil team captain David Lehoang ’11 said.

Varsity A Team saber fencer Spencer Koo ’10 saw few to no flaws in this year’s team.

“We won pretty easily,” Koo said.

Lehoang cautioned against letting the success affect the fencers’ work ethic.

“We can’t get complacent,” Lehoang said.
