Columbia fencing has a rich history of NCAA and Ivy League titles. For Tzu Moy to stand out among the many outstanding Columbia Fencing alumni is a feat in itself. But not even that distinction can hold a candle to her many career accomplishments.
In 1990, Moy was one of two Columbians to win an NCAA fencing individual title, along with David Mandell in men’s sabre. Moy captured the national championship in women’s foil, becoming just the second Columbia female to win an NCAA title, after Katy Bilodeau won a pair of NCAA individual titles in the mid-1980s.
Moy started her illustrious Columbia career on top. In fact, her outstanding accomplishments began before she even stepped on campus, as she was the 1988 National Junior Olympics champion.
Moy did not let the Lions down once she arrived on Morningside Heights; she was named the 1988 Women’s Fencing Varsity C award winner. In 1988, 1989 and 1990, Moy was an All-Ivy League honoree.
In 1988 and 1990, she added All-America first team honors to the list, including her NCAA title in 1990, when she was 18-0 in individual competition and was 13-2 in her team bouts.
Moy now is a physician in nearby White Plains, specializing in internal medicine.
