Fencing Club Alum:
Scott McKenzie reports in 2009: "I am a graduate of WPI, class of '76, and was in the Fencing Club 1975-76. In fact, I fenced in the New England Championships in sabre my senior year. I won about half my bouts. I am glad to see that the Fencing Club still exists when so much else has changed. I can still remember our roadtrips, we would carry extra gasoline in our car trunks due to the gas shortages. I remember that a female fencer from the '32 Olympics would occasionally come and practice with us..."
