Ibtihajon Muhammad of the Peter Westbrook Foundation defeated 2004 Olympian Emily Jacobson to capture the 2009 National Chmpionship in Women’s Saber. Emily Jacobson continues her strong comeback after nearly 3-years off with her best domestic result of the season. (She’s trying to get into the top-8 to ensure she can travel next year)
Alexis Jemal and Samantha Roberts finished tied for 3rd.
The top-4 ranked US women’s saber fencers including 2-Time Olympic Champion Mariel Zagunis, Dagmara Wozniak, Daria Schneider and Monika Aksamit did not compete because of a scheduling conflict with the Pan American Games.
