The Middle Village, New York, native ended the 2014-15 season with a team-best 95-12 record with a plus-287 touch differential.

Yamin, a foil fencer, will be a junior in 2015-16, and looks to follow up on her successful 2014-15 campaign. Hailing from Allendale, New Jersey, Yamin placed sixth at the NCAA Northeast Regional in March, and concluded the season with a 38-32 record with a plus-23 indicator.

The Crimson finished seventh at the 2015 NCAA Championships, and finished in a three-way tie for second-place at the 2015 Ivy League Round Robins.
