Photo of Welford SandersFencing began as an inter-collegiate sport at Wisconsin during the 1920s. The first black Badger to wield the epee seems to be Welford Sanders who won varsity letters on the fencing team for three years in the late 1960s. Several other black Badgers competed for the fencing team until the sport was discontinued in the 1980s.
