Sadly we will be saying goodbye to our seniors; Anita Brown (Epee), Emily Kampmeyer (Foil), Veda Nambi (Epee), Kit Webber (Epee), and Lillian Whithaus (Foil), who strongly kept the team together as amazing E-board members and overall leaders of the club. We wish them well on their future endeavors and hope they will come back for a visit! They are forever loved and welcomed but atlas they must start their new journeys into the REAL world!
Over the summer and throughout the 2017 fall season, this website will be going through some updates and be more active for the next fencing season. So be on the lookout for updates! Have a great summer everyone!
Recently over this weekend two of our Senior Sabre fencers have graduated. They are Yilun “Flip” Tang and Maddie “Big Red” Dubin. All of us have enjoyed their company inside and out of the club. Many good memories and friendships have been created with them. It was a pleasure having them with us. They will be missed but we wish them good luck on their future where ever life takes them!
To celebrate the end of classes and the end of the year, the club organized and hosted a dance party, “Fencing Prom,” for ourselves and the Drexel fencing club. We all dressed up, danced, and had a great time!
Every year at Bryn Mawr College’s May Day celebration, the fencing team writes and performs a parody of the traditional tale of St. George and the Dragon. Click here to watch this year’s play, performed by the team on May 4th. Thanks to everyone who came to see us!
At the end of the year, the fencing team (and coach!) always gets together in the kitchen on campus to make and eat food together, to celebrate the end of the year!
Thank you to everyone for an amazing year, and looking forward to another great year! We’re very excited to welcome a new group of fencers in the fall!
