The Ridge boys’ team also took second place with Medeo fencers Allen Marakov fencing on A strip, Clark Kokenge on B strip and Eric Wang on C strip. Individually, Medeo also excelled in the 2020 NJSIAA Individual girl’s tournament, sweeping the podium: Jessica Lin took 1st place and earned NJ.com Girls Fencer of the Year Title, Julia Yoon took 2nd place, Katie Lin and Diya Kulkarni tied for 3rd place, and Emma Ni finished in 5th place. In the 2020 NJSIAA Individual boy’s tournament, Allen Marakov became the 2019-20 State Champion, earning NJ.com Boys Fencer of the Year Title , with Clark Kokenge taking 5th place.
