Dear Friends of Cornell Fencing,
I hope you and your families are all healthy and having a positive beginning to 2021. We are just over a month into our spring term and today marks our return to training. I am confident we will be able to continue to provide rigorous and challenging training despite the challenges the pandemic provides. We will go through a conditioning phase and then slowly move into drills, lessons, and bouting. Additionally, we will continue footage review designed to establish a data base of information on fencers from competing universities and colleges. The Ivy League Conference will return to athletic activity in phases designed to see if there is any impact on covid spread. With new filters installed in the fencing salle, I am confident we in a good position to provide our athletes with a safe fencing environment during the pandemic.

In this newsletter we highlight
Virtual Reunions

As with last year, we will have to forego the Cornell Fencing Banquet this year. In place of the banquet we are planning two virtual reunions, one for the 1985-1995 era and for the 1995-2005 era. Come to one or come to both! All are welcome. We plan to put on an event for more recent alum after this round of reunions. These reunions largely are inspired by the virtual reunion Alan Petroff organized for the 70's cohort back in October and so I want to thank him again for that.

To see the growing attendee list for the 1985-1995 reunion and sign up, please go here.
Giving Day

Cornell Giving day is March 11th! Our incredible student athlete giving day video can be found here. Because there was no phonathon this year, Giving Day is our only major fundraising event for the year and it has even more importance and impact on our program than ever. I believe your generosity will have a lasting impact on the future of our program. Your support makes all those incredible memories of travel, camaraderie, studying and cheering on your team possible for this new generation of Cornell men and women. It also ensures the survival of fencing as a university sport. We thank you for everything you do.

I am thrilled to announce the women’s class of 2025!! Sarah Lacson, sabre, CA Diana Piovanetti, sabre, PR Renata Chusid, Foil, NJ Rei Horono, foil, NY and Emma Ni, Epee, NJ. We cannot wait to welcome these new athletes to the Cornell Fencing family. Please stay tuned for the men’s team additions, many of them have applied through the regular decision process and they will be announced in April.
