The fencing championships include individual events in each of the six weapons (women’s sabre, women’s foil, women’s epee, men’s sabre, men’s foil and men’s epee). A total of 144 student-athletes compete at the championships. Fencers compete in a round-robin tournament format of 24 fencers in five-touch bouts. After the round robin, the top four fencers in each event fence in direct elimination, 15-touch bouts, for first, second, and semifinalists placing. A team champion is determined by combining the number of points (bouts won) by each team (men’s and women’s fencers) throughout the round-robin portion of the competition. The team with the highest point total is named the National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Fencing Champion.
