Great Lakes Fencing Academy Takes Over for Crimson Blades

  • January 20, 2016

The Great Lakes Fencing Academy reached an agreement with the Libertyville Tennis Club to take over the fencing program that has been started by Coach Gordon Gandy and the Crimson Blades Fencing Academy.

According to Rich Jackim, “Coach Gordon Gandy has been a long-time friend so we were very sad to learn of his difficulties and happy to step in to continue the great fencing program he began. Many of our high school fencers started with Coach Gandy in elementary and middle school. We will all miss Gordy and wish him the best.” Rich Jackim is the founder of the LHS-VHHS Fencing Team and the President of the Great Lakes Fencing Academy.
