Robin Hu, Leigha Capra, & Kevin Baker
On March 18th, 2019, three West Essex fencers were nominated for the All State teams for their outstanding performance this season. Senior Leigha Capra was awarded first team all state for women's epee. Junior Robin Hu was awarded second team all state for men's foil and Junior Kevin Baker was awarded third team all state for men's epee. 
Throughout this season, each of these fencers spent countless hours practicing and perfecting their skills to ensure they were able to compete against some of the toughest competition in the state. At Cetrullo, Junior Kevin Baker had only 1 loss against a pool of over 20 teams. Junior Robin Hu went undefeated during the first round of the state match against Morristown to help the boys team advance to the second round against Ridge. In addition, all three fencers made the individual state tournament and Leigha finished 6th in the state for her weapon. 
Congratulations on a great season and best wishes to Leigha as she graduates this year!
