With three Massachusetts State Championships in the last five years, the BB&N fencing program is one of the most decorated programs in Massachusetts. The team has had numerous individual state champions, including Christine Yao ’14 who won the individual women’s foil title an unprecedented four straight years. BB&N fencers have included a Junior Olympics gold medalist, a US Cadet and Junior World Team member, and several who have represented the United States in international competitions. BB&N fencers have gone on to fence at Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton, Penn, MIT, and Boston College.

BB&N is the only ISL school with a fencing team, so the team competes against schools from across Massachusetts. The season consists of Dual meets between two schools, Multi-Meets which pit several schools against each other, and finally, the Massachusetts State Championships, which includes all teams. In a Dual or Multi-Meet competition, each school puts forward three men and three women fencers in each weaponfoil, epee, and saber. Each fencer in a trio competes in a bout to five touches against each of the three fencers from the other team. There are nine bouts for each weapon, 27 for each gender. A team needs to win at least 14 bouts for a victory. At the State Championships, the team with the most total bout victories in all six weapons wins the championship. Additional trophies are awarded to Men’s and Women’s 3-Weapon Teams, the top squad in each of six weapons, and the top six finalists in each weapon in the individual round.
