Beginning with the 2012-13 season, Pope fencers have been able to earn a varsity letter.

The primary way to earn a letter is to earn 75 points in league tournaments in one season. 75 points is the target for the 2016-17 season, the target may be adjusted in future seasons to account for changes in the number of league tournaments or the number of points awarded by the league.

Fencers who don’t reach the target number of points in a season will still earn a letter if they represent Pope in the Team Championship.

Finally, the Head Coach can award a letter to a fencer who didn’t meet the requirements above, but whose exceptional dedication and leadership have been important to the club.

Fencers who earn a letter in more than one year receive a bar to add to the original letter for each additional year. Here is what the letter looks like with the fencing token sewn on and a bar ready to be sewn on.

Roll of Honour

In the five years that we have awarded letters, 36 Pope fencers have earned a letter, including 12 who earned two letters and 5 who earned three letters.
