Columbia earns first No. 1 ranking

The first edition of the CollegeFencing360.com Coaches' Poll for 2014 has yielded some historic results in the 14-year history of the collegiate fencing poll (2001-14). The Columbia men have received the No. 1 ranking for the first time in program history while the Brown men have cracked the top-10 (9th) for the first time in their program history. It’s a landmark day all-around for Ivy League fencing, as the Princeton women join the Columbia men as near-consensus No. 1 picks in their respective polls, while the Harvard women own the highest ranking (No. 2) in their program history.

Sophomore foilist Adam Mathieu and the rest of his fairly young teammates are part of the first Columbia fencing team to be ranked No. 1.

The annual college fencing coaches polls currently are determined by vote from 10 collegiate men’s fencing coaches and 10 from the women’s side. The poll is sponsored by the United States Fencing Coaches Association (USFCA) and administered by CollegeFencing360.com (CF360).
