Penn State fencer Radanovich wins national championship

Penn State fencing junior Jessie Radanovich became the Women’s Epee National Champion at the NCAA Championships on Friday.

Radanovich earned the title after defeating Princeton’s Charlene Liu in the final round 15-10.

“It feels unbelievably amazing, and I can barely even believe it happened,” Radanovich said in a Penn State release. “I am very grateful to my coaches and to my incredible teammates. I would not be close to doing how I did today without their awesome love and support.”

Radanovich was the only Nittany Lion to compete in Friday’s semifinal and final rounds, but others from Penn State participated. Jessica O’Neill-Lyublinsky placed 20th in the epee, Teodora Kakhiani was seventh in sabre, and Kathryn Charpin was 16th in sabre.
