When the qualifiers are announced for the NCAA Championships on Tuesday, expect to see a boat load of Buckeye names on that list for the championships. OSU sent 22 fencers to compete for spots at the championships to the regional competition on Saturday in Detroit, which just so happens to be where the NCAA Championships will be hosted.

Of those 22 athletes, 19 of them placed in the top 10 at regionals. The following were the top finisher for the men and women in each weapon class.

Saber:
Men - Rosecoe Swartz (1st)
Women - Julieta Toledo (2nd)

Epee:
Men - Henry Lange (1st)
Women - Alexanne Verret (2nd)

Foil:
Men - Diego Cervantes (3rd)
Women - Camilla Rivano (2nd)

Ohio State will now wait until Tuesday to find out which of their athletes made the NCAA Championships.
