0


LAKE JACKSON – When it comes to listing competitive combat sports, fencing is usually not one of the first that comes to mind. Brazosport College professor Kevin O’Neill believes it should.

O’Neill, a longtime member of the BC Math and Life Sciences Faculty, is also an avid fencer who teaches the sport as part of the BC Community Education Program. It also offers private lessons as part of the college’s continuing education program.
