    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern's very own Courtney Dumas has been named to the epée squad that will represent the United States at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia next month.

    Dumas turned in a stellar sophomore season for the Wildcats during the 2012-13 campaign. The Cleveland, Ohio, native garnered All-America honors after placing ninth in women's epée at the 2013 NCAA Championships on March 24. She won 14 bouts at the event and defeated two of the tournament's semifinalists along the way. She also picked up wins over two members of the 2012 United State Olympic team during the regular season.

    The two-time NCAA Championship qualifier became the 14th fencer under the direction of head coach Laurie Schiller to earn an All-America selection. In total, Northwestern fencers have amassed 31 All-America accolades in 36 seasons with Schiller at the helm.

    The 27th staging of the Summer Universiade, held every two years, will commence on July 6 in Kazan and continue through July 17. Northwestern has two other connections with this year's event; diver Felicitas Lenz will compete for Germany, while NU diving coach Alik Sarkisian will instruct the United States squad in that event.
