Madison, NJ - With seven victories on Saturday, freshman Randy Alevi (Old Westbury, NY) put herself in position to be the Brown fencing team's first All-American since 2004. Alevi is in 12th place in the women's saber at the NCAA Fencing Championships at Drew University after going 7-7 during the first half of the women's competition.
Alevi's most impressive win may have been her 5-2 defeat of Penn's Cassandra Partyka, who earned First Team All-Ivy honors earlier this season after going 13-5 in the Ancient Eight. Alevi's other vanquished opponents are all currently sitting beneath her in the standings, but included in her losses was a close 5-4 defeat to Eva Jellison of Stanford, who sits in eighth place.
Alevi's final nine bouts will take place on Sunday. If she can hold her current standing, she'll earn Honorable Mention All-American status. Ruth Schneider '06 was a two-time All-American in the women's epée, finishing 12th in 2003 and fifth in 2004.
