The following is the list of fencers who have earned a bye into the second day of competition at the January NAC Division I Men’s and Women’s Epee events.
*Please note the following important guidelines for this season:
Division I Men’s & Women’s Epee Withdrawal Procedure
If a fencer who earned a bye withdraws from the competition, the next highest seeded (as of the epee seeding deadline) fencer without a bye will be given a bye into the second day of competition. In order to administer this process effectively and to be fair to all fencers, please take note of the following rules:
These guidelines have been put in place to ensure the competition is run as efficiently as possible. This will enable all pools on the second day to be filled with seven fencers and create a better competitive experience. Thank you in advance for your help. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Event Seeding Procedure
Fencers who receive a bye into the second day are guaranteed a bye, but not a seed. Event preliminary seeding will be done approximately 10 days prior to the start of the tournament with final seeding completed at the start of check-in for the event.
Therefore, changes to the National Rolling Point Standings between the regular entry deadline and the establishment of the preliminary seeding 10 days prior to the start of the tournament will be taken into account. However, athletes who earn a bye into the second day of competition will be seeded no lower than No. 62 regardless of changes in the NRPS between the regular entry deadline and when the preliminary seeding is established 10 days prior to the start of the tournament.
