be in the top 3 at the end.
OSU men are ranked #1 and have 12 fencers. They are very good. A 19 point lead is huge. Columbia men are ranked 3rd and also have 12 fencers. A nine point lead is important.
Our men are ranked 4th. However, our men were ranked #1 earlier in the season and we have a lot of talent and experience.
The lead is helpful. It would be nice to grow it, but hopefully it provides enough of a cushion to win the NC even if the men do not beat OSU and Columbia outright .
