Big Blue Round-Up
The University of North Carolina recently announced its nine fencing captains for the 2020-21 season, and Pingry's own Aubrey Molloy '18 is one of them, set to lead the women's foil squad during a somewhat uncertain season.
From UNC's website: "As we navigate a really unusual season, it's more important than ever for us to have strong team leadership," said Matt Jednak, who is in his second season as the Tar Heels' head coach. "Our nine captains, spread across the men's and women's teams and all three weapons, have proven that they can lead, both in their words and actions. The coaching staff relies heavily on them to set the tone, and I have confidence in the job they will do of leading our team."
Currently a junior global studies major, Aubrey was a four-year letter winner at Pingry and earned All-State honors her sophomore and junior years. Last winter, she placed 23rd in foil in the NCAA Regional Fencing Tournament, and has been honored as a Tar Heel Scholar-Athlete.
