A brief history: The Great Lakes High School Fencing Conference was founded in 1981, with charter member schools New Trier (Winnetka, Il), Catholic Memorial (Waukesha, Wi), Culver Academies (Culver, In), Maine West High School (Des Plaines, Il), and Gordon Technical (Chicago, Il). The Great Lakes High School Fencing Championships (formerly Midwest High School Fencing Championships) are hosted by the Great Lakes Conference each year in early February on a rotating basis. Each high school may enter a team with up to four entrants per weapon. Individual and team trophies are awarded.
