Dwight Smith

Dwight Smith’s contribution to the LIU women’s fencing team in his first season as an assistant coach in 2021-22 earned him national recognition.

Smith was named Assistant Coach of the Year by the United States Fencing Coaches Association.

Smith, who still fences competitively, was a three-time All-American while at Columbia as well as a four-time USA National Team member.

In 2021, he was an Olympic alternate for USA Fencing, and traveled with the team as a training partner to Tokyo.

He has medaled at multiple national championships, including a silver in 2015, and earned bronze at the 2019 North America Cup Olympic qualifier.

He also is a fencing coach in New York City with the Peter Westbrook Foundation, and is a member of the Team USA Council on Racial and Social Justice.

“Adding Dwight to our coaching staff is the single best decision I’ve made since taking over this program,” head coach Ivan Lee said. “He does a tremendous job running practices and is an excellent motivating presence. He has a profound understanding of the competition and gets the most out of our team on game day.

“What’s most important is that he has a strong bond with the team. They respond to him extremely well. We are so blessed to have him on board and can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
