“Most of the fencers in our club that are responsible for this amazing victory are very new to fencing and performed well above their experience level,” coach Rich Georgia said. “I am very proud of all of them for the effort they gave. That is the reason we won the 2010 Division Championship.”
Several of the SFAC fencers also qualified for the USFA National Championships this July in Atlanta.
