Randall LeMaster
Position: Assistant Coach
Experience: 3 Years

Randall LeMaster enters his third season as an assistant with the Penn men's and women's fencing program.

Both the men's and women's teams grew by leaps and bounds in 2011-12. On the men's side, a 16-0 start to the year left the Quakers as the last undefeated team in the nation. The team eventually finished at 19-5 and as champions of the U.S. Collegiate Weapon Squad Championships for the second year in a row. The women's team came in at 14-7 for the season and featured freshman Luona Wang, who advanced all the way to the national title bout in foil, ending her first year at Penn as the national runner-up in the weapon. All told, 10 fencers advanced to the national event and the Quakers ended the year in seventh place with six earning All-American honors.

In his first season with the Red and Blue, LeMaster helped a pair of young squads improve, as the men went 18-4 and the women finished 14-8 in dual meets. Despite starting just three seniors between the two squads, the Quakers finished third and fourth at the Ivy League Championships. Penn also had nine fencers reach the NCAA Championships, highlighted by four All-Americans.

LeMaster came to Philadelphia from Ft. Myers, Florida, were he served as owner and manager of Salle de Napoli, a fencing training facility in Ft. Myers, since 2006. During his four years at Salle, his pupils were regular fixtures among the top 16 at the North American Cup while several received national rankings. LeMaster holds a director's rating in epee, foil and saber. He honed his skills as a fencer under the tutelage of Michael Morgan, who has over 50 years of fencing experience and was a long-time student of Maîtres Lajos Csiszar and Bella De Tuscan.

LeMaster previously spent time at Penn during the summers of 2005, 2005 and 2010, when he worked as a dorm advisor and coach for the Penn Fencing Camp. Working the camp, he assisted coaching in training and conditioning for all three weapons. In 2010, he taught Epee with group and individual instruction for over 20 students.

LeMaster began his coaching career at the Ft Myers Fencing Club in 1999. Prior to coaching, LeMaster served in the Navy, and following his honorable discharge worked as a technician and manager with one of the nations leading installers of home and business automation.
