Like many other young professionals, Katharine Scrivener wakes up at about 6 a.m., spends her days in meetings and sending emails, and comes home to make dinner, relax with her husband and work on freelance projects. Unlike most other young professionals, however, Scrivener bookends her mornings and evenings with extensive medication treatments.
Seventy-one fencers took part in the division I-A men’s epee event in the Regional Open Circuit (ROC) Charm City Classic at UMBC. The ROC is a qualifier for the Fencing National Championships that draws over 200 for the various classes. Fencers can score by touching any part of the body with the epee, unlike the foil or sabre which have specific target areas.
