Skeeter’s Pizza Athlete: Asa Hopkins

Asa Hopkins ’01, co-captain of the men’s fencing team, went 11-1 in his matches and led the Fords to four wins against Drew, NJIT, Stevens, and Yeshiva on Sunday. He also put together an impressive 9-3 record in epee at the home meet last Sunday. His two victories against Johns Hopkins kept that meet close, and two versus Cornell headlined a big epee victory against a traditional conference powerhouse. Such performances were not uncommon for Hopkins, who has backed up his co-captain status with stellar fencing throughout the season.

Owl Cafe Athlete: Nina Box

Participating in just her second high jump competition since the 10th grade, Nina Box ’03 tied for first at the Swarthmore Invitational with a jump of 4’10″. Later in the Feb. 12 meet she went on to run a personal best of 2:42 in the 800 meters. This was just the second time she has ever run the event. Congratulations, Nina!
