CLEVELAND, Ohio – Associate head coach Andy Tulleners of the Cleveland State University fencing program was recently recognized with an award by USA Fencing.
Tulleners was one of six individuals across the nation to earn the "Fencing Spirit of the Sport" award earlier this month.
The honorees are chosen based on commitment to the sport of fencing, as well as commitment to his or her club, along with the sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork and character that the nominee displays.
Tulleners and the other five honorees will be recognized at the 2017 Summer Nationals in Salt Lake City with gifts from USA Fencing.
Tulleners was nominated for the award by CSU sophomore fencer Adam Mack.
"His love and passion for the sport is amazing," Mack said in USA Fencing's release.
