On February 28, 2012, I had the privilege to be on the Mendham High School Fencing Team when we beat Columbia High School (with a record of 49-0 over three years) for the title of State Champions in the State Finals. Joining the fencing team my freshman year was definitely a leap (or a lunge) of faith, but not only did I make lifelong friends, I got into great shape and was able to help represent my school in the state finals. Granted, I was running the cheering section with my sister Lea Fuscaldo, but I was helping nonetheless!
I am 100% in favor of school athletic programs. In fact, in my last post, I commented on how little physical activity kids get in a day at school! I will continue to champion the right of children to go run around and exercise, I will never prevent them from doing so.
But anyway, that's besides the point.
With America in the midst of a fiscal crisis, we should be cutting down on spending our money on entertainment and putting the crucial funds towards education!
NEWSFLASH: Education is more important than sport teams!
