Freshman Madeline Girardot wins women foil title
Sept. 9, 2012
Throughout the entire nine minutes of the three-period bout, the two freshmen kept the round very close. As soon as one scored, the other would answer with a touch. For most of the bout, the two opponents kept the scores tied until the third period when Girardot outscored McElwee by four touches.
Earlier in the day, sophomore Alex Chiang won the senior men's foil gold medal round 15-2.
