EASTON, PA. (February 23, 2009) – Freshmen Dzimitry Lamianski and Charles Steiner of the Stevens Institute of Technology men’s fencing team struck gold as both fencers earned championships in their respected weapons at the Middle Atlantic Conference Fencing Association (MACFA) championships Sunday afternoon in Easton, Pa. Lamianski, a sabriest, went undefeated in the preliminary rounds to post a perfect 16-0 mark. Going into the final ranked No. 1, he proceeded to plow thru to the field and in the championship bout defeated UNC’s Kevin Zeichman (Charlotte, N.C.) 15-12 for the gold.

National High School Fencing Blog

Please look this over. We have been contacting high school fencing programs across the country and posting this site on various blogs. It will become a center point of high school fencing as we have plans to develop this into fully operationally web site capable of posting high school results in every state. What this translates into a potential source of new fencers for your club and quite possibly the development and furtherance of high school fencing in your area.
The purpose of this site is to further High School Fencing in the United States. Coaches and High School Administrators are invited to post results and commentary. Fencers and Parents are invited to post commentary, not results. We have received positive feedback from several college coaches with regard to the creation of this blog. This is not a site intended to cause pain or grief, but rather give national prominence to the Athletes and the Sport.
We at Proprintwear are proud of our association with the sport of fencing. Our owner was first a Fencer, secondly a National Referee and now a business owner committed to furthering the image of fencing.
We have added a “Where to Fence” and “Fencing Camp” Sections for advertising fencing clubs and fencing camps. If you like to be posted send us a request. This could be extremely helpful in the recruitment of new fencers.
One of the many challenges facing fencing today is the” unknown”. Up until now, I have been of the opinion that no one individual and/or group has focused in on the area of High School Fencing across the United States. It is our hope that by publishing the various leagues and affiliates that this somehow creates a knowledge base beneficial to the growth of High School Fencing as well as on the national front. On Long Island we have enjoyed High School Fencing for more than 46 years with as many as eleven (11) teams in one county and seven (7) in the neighboring county. For the last several years Long Island has held a Long Island Championship and I am making plans of hosting a State Championship within the next few years.
You will find a short survey at the bottom of the page. Please feel free to contact us with suggested questions at proprintwear@optonline.net. If this site is well received, we shall have a web site constructed to further enhance the development of High School Fencing in the United States.
If possible please provide us with a link to our website using the attached file at http://www.proprintwear.com and a second link to our High School Fencing Blog at http://highschoolfencing.blogspot.com/
