Courtney Hurley (born September 30, 1990) is an American fencer.[1] She won a bronze medal in the women's team épée alongside Maya Lawrence, Susie Scanlan, and Kelley Hurley. A standout at the University of Notre Dame, she was a 4-time All-American.

Coached by their father, Bob Hurley, Courtney and her older sister Kelley have competed on World Teams together since Courtney was 15. In the London 2012 games, the two won bronze in the team event as members of the first U.S. Women's Épée Team ever to earn an Olympic medal.

After competing in the Rio Games, she and her sister Kelley are now training arduously for the Tokyo 2020 games.
