Feb. 8, 2010

FAIRFIELD, CT - Sophomore Marty Williams of the men's fencing team has been named the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart University Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending February 7.

Williams helped the Pioneers to their first Northeast Intercollegiate Fencing Conference (NEIFC) Championship on Saturday at Tufts University. Williams finished with a 13-2 record in saber competition to help the Pioneers to a perfect 5-0 record for the day, and a 10-0 mark for season competition.

Williams finished the year with a 26-3 record and is in the running for both all league and fencer of the year honors.

"This is an unbelievable finish to an exciting year for the team," said head coach Dr. Thomas Vrabel. "We knew that we would be the most talented Pioneer team to date, but we started five freshmen and four sophomores for most of the season, so we definitely had our ups and downs."
