HEAD COACH

Ivan Lee

A Brooklyn native who graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School, Lee was a two-time national champion in the sabre at St. John’s and led the program to its first Division I national championship in 2001. That year, he was named the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Male Athlete of the Year.

A member of the 2001 U.S. Junior World Sabre team, Lee anchored the team to its first men’s world title at the 2001 Junior World Championships in Gdansk, Poland, becoming the first man of African American descent to win a world fencing championship. Lee won two gold medals at the Pan American Games in 2003. He was also a member of the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team in Athens, placing 12th in the individual competition and 4th in the team competition, missing the bronze medal by one point.

Lee holds four World Championship medals and he remains the first American male fencer ever to win a Junior Olympic Championship, a National Championship, an NCAA Championship, a World Championship, a Pan American Championship and make an Olympic Team.
