    BALTIMORE, Md. -- Three members of Northwestern's foil squad teamed up Saturday to win a gold medal in junior team women's foil at the 2013 Junior Olympic Championships.

    Mikela Goldstein, Charlotte Sands and Jen Yamin formed an unstoppable trio Saturday. All three fencers placed in the top 20 in the individual competition Friday led by Goldstein's seventh-place finish.

    Seeded second in the team event Saturday, the 'Cats tore through the tournament in dominant fashion by beating three worthy foes by an average of 17 points. The closest match came in the championship when NU won by a final score of 45-30 over FAW 1.

    Five epée fencers were also in action as individuals in Charm City Saturday. Kaitlyn Wallace had the best finish of the group, coming in at 16th. Fencing in the final junior event of her career, sophomore Courtney Dumas was right on her heels as she finished in a three-way tie for 17th.

    Freshman Cara Franke will compete in Sunday's junior women's sabre competition. Two separate teams will also participate in the junior team women's epée event. The Purple squad will consist of Dumas, Wallace and Haley Hart. The White squad will be formed by Helen Foster, Olivia Lim and Sands.
