Pope alumna and current Northwestern University fencer Katie Van Riper took Gold in Division II Women’s Épée at the October North American Cup in Detroit tonight. North American Cups are a series of five national tournaments leading up to the National Championships in July.
Katie set several records while fencing for Pope, including being:
- The only fencer to ever win three individual league championships.
- The only fencer to ever earn 500 points in a season twice.
If you were not at Pope when Katie graduated in 2014, you may have met her when she helped out a one of our first practices this season.
Congratulations Katie. We are proud of you!
