AFA Fencers To Compete in the New Mexico Open
Oct. 18, 2004
The Falcons will travel to Santa Fe, N.M. to compete in the New Mexico Open on Oct. 23-24. Air Force is at full strength for this competition. The team has been very successful in New Mexico in the past and Head coach Abdel Salem expects this team to be just as successful. "Santa Fe is a good tournament because it provides a chance for the staff to see all of our fencers compete," commented Salem. "We will be able to see how the team performs under pressure and what we need to work on for upcoming events." The event venue is Geneveva Chavez Community Center. While the New Mexico Open is a non-team scoring event, it is an opportunity for the fencers to improve their individual-weapon ratings.
