The fencing team practices two times a week on campus and members can take additional lessons or practice time at the Syracuse Musketeers Fencing Club which is a short distance from campus.
The coach is Lubomir Kalpaktchiev who has more than two decades of experience as a fencing competitor and coach. A former Bulgarian National Champion and Olympic team member, Lubo has won the gold medal in epee at the Empire State Games. His students have competed at the highest levels of the sport. Currently, team members practice on epee but will expand to practice and compete on all three fencing weapons; epee, foil and sabers.
