Tad Lundborg | Varsity Fencing | Senior | Red Bank, N.J.
Lundborg helped the CBA team to a fourth place finish at the 48-team Cetrulo Tournament, the Colts' best finish ever at the event. His epee squad finished second at Cetrulo, which is also the highest squad finish at Cetrulo. The next weekend, Lundborg led the CBA team to its first District 3 Championship. His epee squad also won the district for the second straight year, as well as Lundborg capturing his second straight District Individual Epee Championship, going 8-0 in the championship pool. Outside of fencing, Lundborg has led volunteers for the past two years making blankets for Bob's Blankie Brigade, supporting hospitalized children.
"TJ is an excellent candidate for Athlete of the Month. His last month of fencing has been quite extraordinary for a high school student. On a national level, he recently placed in the USA Men's Division 1 A North American Cup, the highest division in men's fencing." - head coach Mary Mottola
