NEW YORK – Eli Dershwitz, Jerry Chang, and Alexander Eldeib, of the No. 5 Harvard men's fencing team, were named to the All-Ivy League first team, announced by the league office. Co-captain Duncan O'Brien was recognized on the second team.
In helping Harvard win a share of the Ivy League Round Robins for the third-straight year, Dershwitz went a perfect 15-0, and was the only men's fencer to go unbeaten. The award is the first All-Ivy in his career.
Chang went 13-2 in the foil group, and also record the final touch in a 14-13 victory over Princeton to clinch the championship. The first team selection was the third of Chang's collegiate career.
Eldeib posted an 11-4 record wielding the epee, a mark that tied for the best in the weapon class. The All-Ivy honor is the second for Eldeib, who was named to the second team a year ago.
O'Brien was placed on the second team after putting together a 10-5 tournament, which tied for fourth-best among sabre fencers. The award is the second of O'Brien's career, as he was named to the second-team last year.
