Each Division I individual event will serve as a key qualifying tournament for the 2014 Senior World Championships, but no team is more wide open than the men’s epee field in which there are more than a dozen athletes with legitimate chances at qualifying to represent Team USA in Kazan, Russia.

Top-ranked Andras Horanyi (Colorado Springs, Colo.) earned a career-best epee result with a top-16 finish on the World Cup circuit and is seeking to qualify for his first Senior World Team as an epee fencer after three appearances at the Senior Worlds as a foil fencer. Among his challengers are his teammates at the U.S. Olympic Training Center –Jason Pryor (Colorado Springs, Colo.), a 2013 Senior World Team member, and Jimmy Moody (Colorado Springs, Colo.) who won the December North American Cup and placed third in November. Other top contenders include 2012 World Team Champion Ben Bratton (New York City, N.Y.) who is competing at his first Division I Nationals in three years and Alexander Tsinis (Little Neck, N.Y.) who is aiming for a third straight National Championship title.
