The Harvard women's fencing team defeated Tufts in the team's only home dual match of the season Saturday night at the Malkin Athletic Center. The Crimson improved to 6-1 after defeating the Jumbos 22-4.

Senior saber fencer Caroline Vloka remained undefeated this season after sweeping her competition against the cross-town squad. Alexandra Kiefer also turned in a strong performance, achieving perfection against the Jumbos and winning every bout.  

Harvard continued its dominance at home winning its 29th-straight match in Cambridge, Mass., a streak that extends to the 2002-03 season. The Crimson also improved upon its undefeated record against the Jumbos, making it 19-0 in the series history.

The Crimson will take a short break before returning to action when both the men's and women's teams participate in the St. John's Invitational, in New York, N.Y. on Jan. 21. Harvard will host one more home meet this season as the Crimson will play host to the Beanpot tournament on Feb. 14.
