Cmorra: Grappler, Swordswoman
Our very own cmorra slew many opponents in a fearsome multiple opponent duel at Duke University.
"Exceptional play from first years Liesse-Marie Slemon and Christina Morra helped seal the victory for the women."
"The explanation for the team's accomplishments this season is a lingering question in the minds of Brandeis fans and foes, but perhaps it has something to do with their positive attitudes. First year, Christina Morra offers some insight, "Unlike the men's team, we cannot credit our recent success to Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, we can attribute it to a close women's saber squad, an exceptional team, and great coaches. Although we did quite well against some very tough schools throughout the day, each of us had moments when we struggled. Fortunately, the other members of the squad were able to compensate for our losses and show just how strong a team Brandeis is."

Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

Congratulations! Nice job! (And it looks like I'll have drop by to roll with cmorra and see if her triangle is really that deadly...There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)
