|Hackley Fencing Milestone|
It is with great pleasure that I can report that for the first time in memory of myself or Coach Gall, the Mens Foil Team defeated Masters on 2/4/14 with a score of 5-4. Russell H.’s last bout decided the contest, which was well fenced by the starting line-up. Congratulations to Thomas W., Lee C., and Russell H. for marking a milestone in the Hackley Fencing Program.
