The Penn State Fencing Team Gets Down For Charity! (Fencers Helping The World)

The Penn State Fencing team recently performed a dance routine with sabers and masks for a charity event at their school called THON 2010. 

www.THON.org, the online home of the largest student-run philanthropy in the world! The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately referred to as THON, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer.

They have raised 7 million dollars so far this year!

Glad to see the Penn State Fencing Team doing good work.

Now, what do you think of their dancing?

Penn State Dominates the 2009 Fencing NCAA Championships


Congratulations to Penn State  for winning NCAA National Fencing Championships and to the individual weapon champions! (Penn State captured 4 out of 6 of those!!!)

Doris Willete in women’s foil, Anastasia Ferdman in women’s epee, Becca Ward in women’s saber and Oleg Ochocki in men’s saber, Nicolas Chinman in men’s foil and Slave Zingerman in men’s epee.

I must also eat humble pie and congratulate Oleg on his men’s saber title.  I didn’t think he would make the top-4 and boy was I wrong! (And I’ve never been happier to be wrong!)  Congrats Oleg! I can’t wait to congratulation you in-person back in NYC!

Congrats to my Brandeis fencers as well for representing the Deis!
