Matt captained the team during his senior year (2004) and served as captain of the Epee squad from 2002-2004. One of CUMFC’s most successful epeeists in recent history, Matt achieved many outstanding results, including individual silver medal finishes in both MACFA Championships and USACFCs in 2004. That same year Herndon led Cornell to gold medals in the Men’s 3-Weapon Team event and the Team Epee event at USACFCs. Matt also won the Graeme Jennings award in 2002.

Subsequently, Matt has continued his fencing career and participates in a number of USFA tournaments in the North Atlantic Region. He recently earned his A2011, and anchored the Big Red Machine to a Gold Medal finish at the Swords and Strategy Team Open with Frank Castelli and Mike Fotinatos. He currently helps coach the Cornell Recreational Fencing team.

Prior to Cornell, Matt fenced at the Virginia Academy of Fencing, but attributes almost all of his fencing ability to CUMFC.
