About Mid-South Fencers and the Ned Light RYC

Mid-South Fencers’ moved into our first space in downtown Durham, NC in 2008. We moved into our current location on the corner of Morgan and Gregson in the fall of 2013. Ned Light was one of our founding coaches. Ned began Triangle Fencing club, which met at the Duke University Faculty Club. When Mid-South was founded in 2008, Ned merged Triangle Fencing Club with Mid-South which directly contributed to rapid growth of our fencing community.

Ned embodied the values Mid-South promotes of bringing together community and sport through collaborative partnerships. Fun and competitive spirit were not mutually exclusive for Ned. We hope this tournament embodies that spirit of play and mutual appreciation for the referees, staff, and clubs who have come out to support this event.
