Staff Writer LEBANON TOWNSHIP - Senior Raph Mannino won nine of his 10 matches to lead the North Hunterdon High School boys fencing team to the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association team foil championship Saturday at Voorhees High School. The Lions posted 23 victories in foil, tying Millburn for first place with what is a very low win total for a championship team. [...] the Lions won the championship by virtue of indicators; while Millburn took two of three head-to-head meetings with North Hunterdon, Lions senior D.J. Manchen managed to score four touches in his loss, which was enough. Mannino, second in the state in the foil last year, went 9-1 despite an aggravated injury to his right knee.
