COLUMBUS, Ohio – The University of Notre Dame fencing team may not have finished as high in the team standings as they would have liked, but Irish eyes were smiling regardless as graduate student Gerek Meinhardt won his second NCAA men’s foil title. Meinhardt becomes the sixth two-time champion in Irish history, and the second this weekend after Lee Kiefer’s women’s foil title.
“I feel great for Gerek. From my side, he is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity type of fencer to be a coach to,” associate head coach and foil specialist Gia Kvararskhelia says. “He is an incredible athlete, but even more of an incredible human being. I am just so proud to be associated with him.”
