Fencer goes to finals

By Ken Ellis

Henrik Martin, a sophomore with the MIT fencing team, was one of seven epeeists representing the Northeast in the NCAA National Championships last week at Pennsylvania State University.

He earned the spot early in March by taking sixth place in the Northeastern Championships, held here at MIT, and by his outstanding record during the regular season.

After a strong performance in the seeding round, Martin was eliminated in the second round after several close bouts.

In his last bout of the round, from which only the winner would progress, he was narrowly defeated by Oshima from Columbia 6-5, who later went on to place first in the competition.

(Ken Ellis '93 is manager of the men's fencing team).
