The Wildcat Fencing Club was founded in 2009 by James Fowler ’13. The club enthusiastically shares the sport of fencing with nonfencers and also trains for competitions around the country.

The club, which has 15 members including undergraduate and graduate students as well as members of the Tucson community, defeated ASU in their fall duel.

Trevor Gervais, a UA political science major, is among 147 undergraduate and graduate students in the United States selected to serve in the White House Internship Program.
