    Julie Földi arrived at Northwestern by way of Budapest, Hungary in the fall of 2001, already as a national champion in her native country. Four years later when she concluded her illustrious career in 2005, she departed as the program's first-ever four-time All-American. Foldi, who fenced foil for the Wildcats, earned All-America accolades in 2002, 2004 and 2005 by finishing eighth at the NCAA Championships and by coming in 10th as a sophomore in 2003.

    Földi won 386 bouts during her storied tenure in Evanston, the third highest total in program history. In fact, the Hungarian posted an overall winning percentage of .834 (386-77), which ranks third overall in NU lore. The foilist led the 'Cats in victories in three of her four seasons with the program. Földi won 115 of her 132 bouts as a junior in 2003-04, including a dramatic win over the defending NCAA champion, Alicja Kryczalo of Notre Dame, at the NU Duals.

    As a foil fencer, Földi excelled at the Midwest Fencing Conference Championships during each of her four seasons. She was a medalist at all four conference meets, winning silver as a freshman in 2002 and following that up with three straight bronze medals from 2003-2005.

    During Földi's four-stint on the shores of Lake Michigan, Northwestern posted an overall record of 115-17 and finished no lower than eight at the NCAA Championships each year. She is the first Northwestern fencer to earn induction into the prestigious club.
