Feehan Fencing Receives Financial Backing from Parent Supporters
School program receives donation.
Bishop Feehan High School Athletic Director Paul O’Boy accepted a donation from a parent supporter of the Shamrock Fencing Club.
In the past five years, the Shamrock fencers have boasted two individual State Championships, seven Squad Medals, and a dozen State Finalist standings.
Many fencers have gone on to attend colleges with fencing teams and continue to compete.
A notable graduate, Justin Dion, senior member of the Pioneers Fencing team for Sacred Heart University, won the Big One and NCAA third-team All-American, was a Gold Medalist at the New England Fenching Championships and placed fifth in the country at the USFA National Fencing Championship in 2011.
