About The Club
The UMass fencing team has sent a representative to the Bay State Games every year since 1985. Members of the men's team went undefeated to win the inaugural Northeastern Fencing Conference Championships in 1992-1993, while the women finished second.
More recently, UMass sent a six-weapon team to compete in the first National Collegiate Club Fencing Championships. The Championships are the top intercollegiate competition for non-varsity (NCAA) teams. The men’s team emerged as 2003 national co-champion, tying with Northwestern with 95 victories in 123 bouts. The women’s team were national runners-up, only 2 victories behind host Florida, with 69 victories in 105 bouts. By virtue of these results (a combined 164 victories), UMass emerged as the top overall six-weapon team at the National Championships. In addition, UMass fencing produced a national champion men's foil squad, national champion women's Epee squad, national runner-up men's Epee squad, national runner-up men's sabre squad and twelve individual finalists.
