CHATTANOOGA (BAYLOR) - In the ten years of high school fencing in Tennessee, Baylor has won nine state championships, earning the Raiders' latest this weekend in Memphis. Jake Wagner won the individual crown in the foil event and was second in the epee competition.


As a team, Baylor won a surprise (and narrow) victory over Memphis University School, Memphis Homeschool Group, Christian Brothers, Germantown High School, St George's, and Lausanne, bringing home a state championship in the epee event. The Raiders finished second in the foil to MUS, ending a four-year championship run in that weapon; the result does continue Baylor fencing's impressive team foil streak of being at or near the top, with a ten-year record of eight titles and two runners-up.


In the girls' division, Kate Conway was at the front, taking the second place spot in both the foil and epee events. Vera Jin (third in the epee) and Lily Haskins (third in the foil) were the other girls' medallists for Baylor. Peter Ceren was the other boys' medalist for Baylor, taking third in the epee.
