CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Kristin Vines is a no-nonsense fencing coach, one of the best in the nation.

She drills her team in Chattanooga on the tactics and techniques that have led to 17 state titles.

But the 56-year-old isn't content to just direct others and stalk the sidelines.

Vines is a 4-time USA Fencing champion who still competes.

She won the gold at last year's national championship for women age 50 or older.
