Fencing is HOT. Everybody wants to fence. This year the Great Neck North Girls Fencing Team wanted it the most. The team began their season determined to maintain their illustrious titles of County and Conference Champions, for Nassau County. The varsity fencing team is made up of 11 girls. This year the girls showed their team spirit by sporting new team sweatshirts and ribbons and by getting psyched at a pasta party before the county finals.
