Transcript LIVINC BY sharpen their skills UH has always had a reputation for producing some of the most talented athletes in the nation, a tradition to which the Fencing Club lived up. After winning the Collegiate Fencing Championships in 1999, the program continued to perform among the best in the nation, including several top finishes this year. The fencing team was run entirely by students, and everyone involved, from beginner to expert, was proud to be a part of it. "The greatest strength of UH fencing is everyones drive to fence. The team is important to all of us;' said team captain Justin Phillips. Quite often, students joining the organization purchased most of their fencing gear with money out of their own pockets.

The Fencing team competed at several different tournaments throughout the nation, but primarily squared off against other Texas universities in the Southwest Intercollegiate Fencing Association.

Perhaps most importantly, the prestige that the organization has garnered through its success in representing the University in national competitions proved that the UH Fencing Team was nothing to shake a stick at. -Matthew E.
