Rebels Fencing Secures Both Boys And Girls Nassau County Championship

Great Neck North hosted the Nassau boys and girls fencing title where Great Neck South High School girls team came back from a 13-11 deficit to beat Syosset High School. They captured their sixth straight title in a back-and-forth affair where neither team had higher than a three-point lead.

Great Neck went up 11-8 anticipating an easy path to clinch the game but Syosset ripped off five straight wins taking a 13-11 lead, retaking the momentum Great Neck worked to secure. Backs against the wall, Syosset had Great Neck where they wanted them.
Great Neck tied the game 13-13 and Justina Hom won the final match-up against Rhea Sood of Syosset 5-3 to take home the title, capping off an undefeated season.

The Great Neck South boys fencing team faced off against the Syosset boy’s fencing team. The boys game followed the intensity of the girls with a 14-13 finish after an extra-time win from Justin Chou over Syoset’s Taranjot Bambara. They were tied up 3-3 and needed a minute of extra time to determine the Nassau boys fencing champions. Great Neck South Boys team won.

Syosset’s undefeated season comes up short, losing an opportunity to win back-to-back championships.

“This is the 6th consecutive title for the girls team led by Coach Sagevick, and the 4th title in 6 years for the boys team led by Coach Baravarian. Good luck to our fencers as they advance to the Long Island Championship,” said the Great Neck Public School District.
