CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the third time in four seasons the MIT men's fencing team received three All-Star selections from the Northeast Fencing Conference (NFC). Sophomore Benjamin Lin (Beaverton, Ore.) and freshman Tzer Wong (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) represented the Engineers on the sabre list while sophomore Sam Judd (Wyckoff, N.J.) was tabbed to the epee first team.

Lin was a sabre first team pick for the second straight season as he compiled an NFC ledger of 24-4, winning 86 percent of his bouts. Wong's placement on the second team resulted in MIT earning multiple sabre awards for the first time since 2007. During his rookie campaign, he went 24-6 for a winning percentage of .800. Judd collected his first NFC honor as he went 26-3 (.897) against his epee opponents.
