On November 6, the team of Chris White ’05, Wren Elhai ’08, Rachel Burrow ’08, and late addition Arthur Chu ’06 placed second overall at Princeton’s “Kickboxer” tournament, rallying from a slow 3-3 start to an 8-4 finish. Wren was the fourth highest scorer, and Chris took top individual honors, the first time since 2001 a Swarthmore player has done so.

On October 30th, two Swarthmore teams competed in the ACF Fall tournament at Rutgers-Newark. The A team, consisting of Chris White ’05, Emily Ullman ’06, Arthur Chu ’06, and Rachel Winer ’06, placed second overall with an 8-4 record, while the B team of Scott Blaha ’07, Anne Searcy ’08, and Rachel Burrow ’08 placed seventh with a 4-7 record. The B team’s record was good for first among all Division two teams, a category in which the team must include only freshmen and sophomores.
