IIRC, you also had a fencing scholarship. Not everyone gets one of those. - Windowseat | Date: 2/24/2014 10:39:41 PM | Number: 880484

You recall WRONG.

I did NOT ever receive a Fencing Scholarship. The part-time Fencing coach, an accomplished attorney, later a Judge, only had four of those per year to award. There are three to four fencers on a team for each of the three weapons: Foil, Sabre, and Epee. That makes 12 fencers plus additional fencers for the practice/training group. I was a finalist in Sabre for the 1964 US Olympic Sabre team. I had never fenced before 1961.
