Jersey girls Ava Navarro of Frenchtown (left) and Sofia Komar (center) of
Old Bridge usually find themselves on opposite sides of the strip at fencing
tournaments, but in March the two nationally ranked youth epeeists 
teamed
up to win the Y14 Women¹s Epee Team competition at the U.S. Fencing 
Association
North American Cup (NAC) held in Memphis, Tennessee.

With their team ³Cool Story, Bro² down 5 touches going into the ninth and
final bout of the gold medal match, Komar fought back and outscored Hooked
On Fencing¹s anchor and fellow Garden Stater LeeAnn Choy (Basking Ridge)
14-8 to win in overtime.

Navarro trains with Zoltan Dudas at TigerZ Fencing Academy in Princeton
and Komar works with Yakov Danilenko at Medeo Fencing Club in Bridgewater.
The USFA Youth Team competitions allow composite teams, and ³Cool Story,
Bro² was rounded out by another 13-year old from California, Chloe Daniel,who
Ava and Sofia know from the national youth fencing circuit.
