Lee was named ACC Saber Fencer of the Year for the first time in his career after earning his first All-America honor at the NCAA championships.

In addition to his NCAA performances, he won bronze in the individual game of the ACC championship and placed seventh in the regional meet.
Ferrari is the only sophomore in the District III ballot. She qualified for the NCAA Championship for the second time in her young career and earned her second All-America honor with an 11th-place finish in women’s foil. She won bronze in the individual portion of the ACC Championship and placed fourth at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic/South Regional. She played to an impressive 37-9 regular season record and helped the women’s foil team set a 14-5 season record.
