Fencers prepare for Junior Olympics
Fo70ur WI1oliveri nes c omtel)? in ~... ..
December qualifying meet q

by Jeff Lieberman
Daily Sports Writer
Two years ago, former Michigan
fencing club president Philip Issa
competed in the Junior Olympics at
Colorado Springs.
This year, he is passing along his
experiences to help four teammates
achieve that same feat.
"Phil went to. the Junior
Olympics a few years ago," current
team president Sarah Hipp said. "He
said that if the competition at his
qualifying event is the same, then
I'll probably get a chance.".
"When I went, I told a few more
people about it, and there's been a
lot more interest in it recently," Issa
said.
Hipp, along with Bonny Chen,
Eric McAlpine, and Jeff White will
all compete in the Junior Olympics'
qualifying tournament in December.
The ensuing olympics will be held
in February in Little Rock,
Arkansas.
Issa, who is no longer eligible to
compete, is the only member of the
team to have gone to the Junior
Olympics, which takes a certain
number of competitors from each
state. When he competed two years
ago, the event was at the Air Force
Academy in Colorado Springs.
"It wasn't one of my best days
fencing, but in the end I finished
around 90 out of 180," Issa said.
Issa pointed out the many obsta-
cles and difficulties of competing in
such a large event, obstacles that
may hurt an athlete's chances of do-
ing well.
"It .was probably one of my first
tournaments of that size," he said.
"I was kind of lost in the beginning.
But, in general, when you're at a
fencing tournament, they end up be-
ing like most fencing tournaments."

As a member of a non-varsity
Michigan squad, Issa didn't have the
luxury to bring a coach with him to
the tournament. He had to fund the
trip himself and couldn't afford to
bring his parents along with him.
In addition to competing, Issa had
the added burden of making his own
living and travel arrangements.
"I was alone there," Issa said. "I
knew absolutely nobody. I really
didn't have that many chances to
meet that many people."
However, other fencers at the
event faced similar problems.
"In my first round of competi-
tion, there was a guy there who
ended up placing second in the whole
tournament," Issa recalled. "The very
first bout I fenced was against him
and he had the chicken pox at the
time."~
He also remembers the trouble he
and others ran into just arriving at
the academy to compete.
"The night before it was really
foggy," he remembered. "The taxi I
took to get to the Air Force
Academy got lost since it was so
foggy. I almost missed registering
for the tournament."
Issa knows from experience that
competing at this event is not an
easy task. Hopefully, he can pass on
some of his experiences to those
members who wish to go to this
year's Junior Olympics.
All of the fencers, he feels, have
more than practical shots at qualify-
ing for the event. And they too feel
that if all goes well, they could get a
shot to compete.
"I have probably a 50-50 chance,"
Hipp said. "It could be a little more
depending on how much training I
can get in before then and how good
the competition is there."

takes the offensive in a competition last year. This year she hopes to do
the same in the Junior Olympic's qualifying tournament.

Both Chen and White have also
shown a lot of potential since be-
ginning fencing a year ago.
"A lot of it depends on who de-
cides to go to the qualifying events.
The field of competition on that day
is a large part of your chances," Issa
said.
"It depends on the person and
how they're feeling that day," Hipp
added.
If all four do happen to qualify it
will not only be a great accom-

plishment for the team, but it will
also help them to do better at Litg~e
Rock.
"If two or three of them qualify it
will be a lot better because they
could travel together," Issa said.
"They'll be able to watch out for
each other. They'll just have lessti
worry about."
And hopefully these fencers can
pass along their experiences to the
next group.
