Nikki Franke, Legendary Fencer, Legendary Coach

Guest post by Deanna Straw
For Women’s History month, we are honoring one female athlete each week who through their leadership and athleticism, have blazed a trail for countless women to compete after them.
 
First up is Nikki Franke, Hall of Fame Women’s Fencing coach at Temple University. Franke has been the head coach since the team was formed in 1972 and just achieved her 800th win as coach in February! She told Temple News, “Whatever people do, it can’t be done by themselves. It takes hard work from everyone. I just want to be able to come into work everyday and share the sport I love with other people. I am grateful for an opportunity to do that.” In her tenure of 45 seasons, Franke has a .955 winning percentage and only 2 losing seasons.
 
Prior to coaching, Franke was a world class fencer herself. She competed as a member of the ‘76 and ‘80 US olympic foil squad and she medaled in the Pan American Games in ‘75 and ’80. Born in Harlem in the 1960’s, fencing opened up a world of opportunity for Franke. "It changed my life," Franke told ESPN. "I got to travel the world. I've been to places I never even dreamed about.
 
Franke was named USFCA Coach of the Year in 1983, 1987, 1988 and 1991. She has been inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame, United States Fencing Association Hall of Fame and Temple University Athletics Hall of Fame.
Franke is one of the co-founders of Black Women in Sport Foundation, a nonprofit that encourages black women and girls to participate in all areas of sports.
