Air Force fencers sophomores Mary McElwee and James Salem continued to promote the Air Force Academy's fencing program to the international community. This past weekend, McElwee competed in the women's foil Junior World Cup in Lyon, France on Saturday where she finished in 21st place in the field of over 80 competitive fencers. Salem traveled to Goteburg, Sweden for the Vigor Junior World Cup. Salem finished 50th among the field of 214 international men's epee fencers.
The pair returned home to the Air Force Academy in time to join the fencing team this weekend in Durham, N.C. for the Duke Invitational, Feb. 8-9.
