With over eight years of epee coaching experience, Cedric Loiseau enters his first season as associate head fencing coach at the University of Notre Dame and fourth overall, boasting a pedigree both on and off the strip. Loiseau has already developed numerous pupils who have flourished on the international fencing scene.

Since arriving at Notre Dame, Loiseau has overseen the development of the Irish épée squads, including three All-American performances by a pair of student athletes — Garrett McGrath (2014) and Ashley Severson (2014, 2015).

In his two seasons prior to arriving at Notre Dame, Loiseau coached his épée team to seven podium finishes (including two gold medals) in national senior-level events. Loiseau's teams also brought home five top finishes at the junior-cadet level, highlighted by a bronze medal win at the Junior France Championship in 2011.

Loiseau enjoyed tremendous success in coaching at the local level in France. During a seven-year stretch from 2005-11, Loiseau directed 22 individuals to gold medals at State League Championships, while helping 17 teams top a podium during that span.

Loiseau brings many personal experiences on the strip with him to Notre Dame, with eight senior/cadet-junior event championships to his name and finishing the season as the top-ranked fencer nationally in France across two different flights.

His accomplishments stretch far beyond individual accolades, as he was a part of the 2004 University France Championship squad, the 2002 European Junior Team Championship squad, a silver medalist in the 2003 France Championships and a two-time Junior World Cup bronze medal finisher.

Loiseau graduated from the University of Reims in 2004 with a degree in sports and exercise science and technology. Since that time, he has received several fencing training certificates, including most recently earning his masters degree certificate in the BEES program for fencing.

A resident of Mishawaka, Ind., Loiseau and his wife, Marie, have two sons, Eliott and Oscar.
