WALTHAM, Mass. – Brandeis University men's and women's fencing coach Jennie Salmon will join the Temple University Athletics Hall of Fame as part of the Owls' 1992 NCAA Championship fencing team.
Salmon was a sophomore on the team that went 17-1 under legendary coach Nikki Franke and won the program's only national title. She was one of two All-Americans on the squad, earning honorable mention honors. Temple entered the 1992 championships seeded second and upset top-seeded Penn State, who had handed the Owls their only loss, 9-7, in the finals.
The team was recognized along with 14 individuals by Temple's Acting Athletic Director Fran Dunphy last week. Click for the full Temple Hall of Fame announcement.
Salmon has been the head coach of Brandeis fencing since 2018. In her second season with the Judges, she helped three Judges, Jessica Morales '24 and Maggie Shealy '24 for the women and Ben Rogak '24 for the men, qualify for the NCAA championships, although the event was canceled due to COVID-19.
