HHS Olivia Weller is Suffolk County Epee Champ

Weller came out on top at the 46th Annual Suffolk County Fencing Championships held at Centereach High School last weekend. Huntington girls came in fourth place in the team results and the boys came in fifth.

Huntington junior Olivia Weller won her second consecutive Suffolk epee fencing title to help the Blue Devil girls' team capture a silver medal at the 47th annual county championships earlier this month.

Weller, who went 12-2 in team and individual competition on the day, had to win a three-way fence-off with two Centereach fencers to earn the title after the trio was tied at the end of the regular finals pool.

The Huntington girl's team finished tied with Centereach for second-place in the competition after compiling an impressive 33 wins on the day. The Blue Devils secured their position with a 5-4 victory over Newfield in the final rotation.

Huntington's epee squad (seniors Johanna Clifford and Alanna Tieman and juniors Mia Rienzo and Weller) compiled a combined 14-7 mark. Weller was 6-1 and Clifford and Tieman were each 4-3.

The Blue Devil foils (seniors Lena Freed and Brittany Pucci-Schmitz, junior Cody Jacobs and sophomore Alexandra Martinolich) were 9-12, with Freed going 4-3 and Jacobs 2-1. The sabres (freshmen Katia DeSimone and Joey Tuozzo and juniors Dylan Tuozzo and Olivia Johnson) were 10-11, with DeSimone going 5-2.

Huntington's boy's team finished eighth with 18 wins. The sabres (senior Lief Drace, juniors Dante Corrocher and Connor Purcell and freshman Brent Filippini) were 6-15, with Corrocher winning three bouts. The foils (sophomores Nicolas Maiarelli and Robert Folan, junior Sean Harkins and senior Taylor Fritts) also were 6-15, with Maiarelli and Harkins each winning three. The Blue Devil epees (seniors Dan Lobasso and Tyler May, junior John Ferraiolo and freshman James Ferraiolo) were 6-15.

Weller, a legitimate fencing star, garnered first team All-County and All-Long Island honors. Clifford and Tieman received second-team All County recognition. DeSimone, Freed, Martinolich and Pucci-Schmitz were honorable mention All County.

Among the Huntington boy's squad, Maiarelli, Lobasso and John Ferraiolo were second-team All County and Corrocher was honorable mention All County.

The Blue Devils are coached by Alan Kuver, Mike Fabio and Valinda O'Garra.
