For the Division I men’s and women’s épée events at the October NAC, the event format will be determined after the regular entry fee deadline, based upon the number of registered fencers in each event. Based on the total number of registrants, the épée events may be conducted with one or two pool rounds.
If an event has more than 202 fencers, it will be conducted with two rounds of pools. If an event has 202 fencers or fewer, there will only be a single round of pools. For a full summary of each format, see below:
Two-Pool Format (203 fencers or greater)
One-Pool Format (202 fencers or less)
