Exciting meets for Men’s Varsity Fencing team

The Men’s Varsity Fencing team had a busy couple of weeks hosting Herricks and traveling to Hewlett and Syosset.  They ended the stretch with a 1-2 record.  On 1/11, the team earned a win over Hewlett.  Sweeping the competition at this meet were saber Junior Steven Cowie, saber sophomore  Matteo Shettino, foil co-captain sophomore Trey Plastaras, and epee senior co-captain Louis Rivera.  Wins were also earned by saber captain senior  Pat Bohn, foil co-captain senior  Eric Hartmann, and epee co-captain senior Michael Siragusa.  Ronan Comerford, freshman epee, was subbed in to finish the meet.

The team fenced Herricks 1/13.  Despite a close loss, highlights of the match were foil Trey Plastaras keeping his undefeated streak intact for the season and new foil sophomore Marc Tosi energizing the team with his first varsity win! Way to go Marc! Adding to the “W” column at the meet were Pat Bohn, Steven Cowie, Matteo Shettino, Connor Davan, Louis Rivera, and Michael Siragusa.

Even though the unbeaten Syosset team proved to be too much for the GC men there was still excitement on the strip.  In a rematch of the Brentwood final, silver medalist Trey Plastaras fenced the gold medal winner.  Trey emerged victorious in an exciting bout.  He has still not lost a high school bout this season. He certainly won the honor of fencing athlete of the week.  Although the Brentwood rematch and win was the focal point, other GC fencers were victorious over the competition including Pat Bohn, Matteo Shettino, Eric Hartmann, and Louis Rivera.

Up next for the gentlemen is an away meet vs Jericho and Senior Day/dinner celebration, Friday following practice.  Good luck!
