Peter Wetzel sits atop the list of qualified fencers for Men’s Epee at the 2016 NCAA Fencing Championships.

Fencers will compete in a round-robin format of five-touch bouts. After the round-robin, the top-four finishers in each weapon will fence in semifinal 15-touch bouts, with the winners fencing to determine first and second places, and the non-advancing fencers being awarded a tie for third place.

Sometime during March 24 - 26, a live feed of the semi-final and final bouts will be available on ESPN3 or the WatchESPN App. The semi-finals and finals, along with other championships highlights will air on ESPNU at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time on April 6.
