Centennial sophomore Drew Walker has been recognized by USA Fencing as one of six recipients of the organization’s Fencing Spirit of Sport awards. Walker is a third-year fencer and captain of the Centennial fencing team.

USA Fencing is the sport’s governing body, and each quarter it recognizes six fencers – of any age – who exemplify the spirit of the sport through mentoring, leading, teaching and sportsmanlike example. The other recipients hail from across the country – Montana, Illinois, New York, California and Texas – and range in age from 16 to 59.

The award citation praised Walker for his dedication to the sport by attending all practices, working with beginners to help them improve their skills, and showing outstanding sportsmanship at tournaments. In addition to fencing for Centennial in the Georgia High School Fencing League, Walker fences for the Dunwoody Fencing Club. A team member’s mother said Walker “serves as a leader in our club” and his “devotion and commitment [to the sport] is unwavering.”

In addition to the USA Fencing accolade, Walker is the 2018-19 USA Fencing Epee Region 6 Gold Points award winner. Region 6 comprises 12 states from Maryland and W. Virginia in the north to Mississippi and Florida in the south.
