And, wouldn't you know it -- World #1 Lee Kiefer -- clinched Notre Dame's 9th National Championship in Fencing!
I believe it's Notre Dame's 28th or 29th National Championship in all sports!
That's #1 in the world!!!
Notre Dame senior Lee Kiefer just became the first woman in American history to be ranked #1 in the world in Foil Fencing...
Lee is in Indianapolis today with the Fighting Irish as they seek their 9th National Championship!
Notre Dame fans -- keep an eye out for Notre Dame Fencing. The NCAA Championship is taking place in Indianapolis -- and after three days, the IRISH have widened their lead!
They look to be on their way to the program's 9th NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP -- sometime later today!
