Today, the fencing team had its first home match against rival Christian Brothers Academy in the new Cetrulo Family Fencing Center. But first didn’t necessarily mean easy. Victory was contingent on a single match: Alexander Cruz UDI closed out the final bout with a score of 5-1, securing SBP a marginal victory of 14-13.

Curiously, this isn’t the first time Alex has been put in such a situation. At the fencing team’s first away match at Riverdale School in New York, the team could only win if Alex won his final bout.

“I was nervous that if I would have lost I would have disappointed my brothers,” Alex said. “What helped me win and boosted my confidence [today] was my brother Diego Serrano winning his previous bout; it gave me the strength and courage to fight for every touch.”

Diego Serrano SY earlier today had brought the team’s score from 12-13 (SBP-CBA) to a 13-13 tie in what was also a nerve-wracking, lively bout.

The fencing team had lost to CBA last year in what was also a close match. But this year was different. The team’s record now lies at a solid 3-1.
