Elizabeth Beguinet passed away Saturday after a long battle with cancer.
USA Fencing :
- We were saddened to learn that Elizabeth Beguinet passed away Saturday after a long battle with cancer. Elizabeth was most recently the director of administration and recruiting for the Duke Fencing program.
- Elizabeth served as co-manager for Team USA at the 2006 Junior and Cadet Fencing World Championships in Korea and the 2006 Senior Fencing World Championships in Italy.
- Within USA Fencing, Elizabeth was instrumental in supporting the growth of fencing coaches, including as associate director of USA Fencing’s coaching development program from 1999 to 2011.
- Our thoughts are with Elizabeth’s husband, Duke Fencing Head Coach Alex Beguinet, her daughter, Heather, and all of Elizabeth’s family, friends and those who knew and cared for her.
