Default I coach at 2 schools... they faced each other yesterday

3 days a week I coach at Marian
1 day I coach at Homewood Flossmoor
1 day I coach kids from both schools at my club
On Saturday I try to help both at tournaments, but I do show favoritism to Marian, and mostly to Dasha because she is the most advanced fencer and wants/needs additional coaching to move into top tier college fencing

Yesterday they competed against each other.

One of the photos shows me with Imani. She and I have taken a dozen + selfies together over the years. A beautiful young lady who is graduating soon. I’ll miss her. Smart, sweet, hard working and with a smile that lights up a room. She will be off to college soon. In fencing she is a very solid fencer but always falls just outside the medals. Tough competitor who scares the heck out of highly talented fencers, often losing by only 1 touch. But just shy of medals.

of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
