Fencer Featured
Wayne State University fencer Slava
Zingerman from Ashkelon, Israel, was
the subject of a recent feature story in
the Detroit Free Press.
Zingerman, 24, has won back-to-
back NCAA epee championships. If
he wins his third in a row in March at
Penn State University, he'll become the
first Wayne State epeeist to accomplish
the feat. Detroit-based Wayne State
has had a men's fencing team since
According to the Free Press, former
Wayne State fencer Anna Garina,
another Israeli who won NCAA wom-
en's titles in epee from 2005 to 2007,
helped pave the way for Zingerman
to come to Wayne State. Garina told
Wayne State fencing coach Jerzy Radz
about Zingerman and his fencing
accomplishments on the international
level. After he graduated from high
school in 2002, Zingerman served in
the Israeli army from 2003 to 2006.
