Competitions

In 2010 the Fencing Club competed against Reed College, Portland State University, University of Puget Sound and Clark Community College. LCC teams took second place in foil and first and third places in saber!

In 2007 the Fencing Club competed in its first tournament at Reed College in Portland. Our saber team (Doug Carter, Andrew Greig, and Jacob Rintoul, front row in the team picture below) took first place, competing against teams from Reed and the University of Oregon. Our foil team (Zach Greig, Corwyn Kiger, and David Meyers back row in team picture) took second place in a much larger field of teams.

Attending the tournament at Reed has become a tradition for our club.
