Coach Kolakowski Named “Spirit of Sport”

Congratulations to Coach Dennis Kolakowski, for being named USA Fencing’s 2017-18 Third Quarter Spirit of Sport. This award is given by USA Fencing “…to recognize an individual who has exemplified commitment and dedication,  teamwork and sportsmanship, leadership and selflessness, and service to their community…”

Coach Kolakowski was mentored by H3 Coach Jerome Cordero, and still works closely with Hills Fencing Institute to this day– we couldn’t be more honored.

Congratulations on his achievement, as well as his fencer, Ilsa Hoffman, the amazing Sabre fencer who nominated him. Read more about this dynamic duo in the articles below!
