With more than a 35 year history, the Guilford Fencing Team has developed many fun traditions. These include:
The end-of-season banquet is a special evening for all of the fencers, coaches, and families. Team and individual achievements are recognized, coaches are thanked for their commitment and investment of time, seniors are honored for their dedication, and a good time is had by all.
A slide show of photos taken throughout the season is put together by the seniors and a memory keepsake program is given to each attendee.
J.V. and varsity letters are handed out, state team sweatshirts are given, each senior makes a speech, and the following awards are announced (one is given to a fencer of each gender).
Most Valuable Player
For the past several years, the banquet has been held at Woodwinds in either the end of March or the beginning of April.
