Fencing Comes To UNC

Coach Ron Miller came to Carolina in 1967 as a physical education instructor. While in graduate school, Miller had written a paper on the kinesiology of fencing and a professor of his put him in touch with the chair of UNC’s physical education. Miller moved to UNC as a physical education instructor and started the fencing program at UNC in 1967. He finished 8–1 in his first season, and built the team into a varsity sport in 1970.
